Skull Base Tumor Imaging

Safe skull base surgery is predicated on detailed knowledge of the relevant anatomy.  We aim to apply advanced imaging modalities to assess critical structures that may be encountered during the operative approach to improve preservation of neurovascular function.
Areas of investigation include the utility of dynamic CT angiography, MR elastography, and diffusion tractography in skull base surgery.
