Objective: In glioma surgery, preservation of fibers originating in the precentral gyrus is still challenging. Preoperative DTI based tractography allows an approximation of the course of fibers but is intraoperatively limited due to brain shift. Therefore the intraoperative cortical and subcortical[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
