Objective: To prevent speech deficits in glioma surgery by integrating the course of fibers connecting language related brain areas into a microscope-based navigation setup. Methods: Diffusion tensor imaging based fiber tracking was performed applying diffusion weighted echo planar imaging on a 1.5T[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
