Objective: To examine the feasibility of routine perfusion-weighted intraoperative MR imaging (iMRI) and to evaluate its usefulness as an aid to detect the residual tumor and and maximise the tumour resection extent. Method: Twenty-eight patients underwent perfusion-weighted iMRI (in a dual-room [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
