Brain mapping helps neurosurgeons diagnose, treat, and monitor people with an array of neurologic issues including:

Brain Mapping Technology

  • High definition fiber tracking (HDFT) — May be used to view the detailed wiring of a person’s brain fibers. With fiber tracking, neurosurgeons can plan the most effective and least damaging pathways to remove brain tumors.
  • MEG (Magnetoencephalography) — This non-invasive brain mapping technique records brain activity based on the magnetic fields produced by the brain.
