Magnetic Resonance Elastography as Tool for Surgical Planning

2017 31 Jan

Researchers at Mayo Clinic have used magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) to assess pituitary tumour stiffness by measuring waves transmitted through the skull into pituitary macroadenomas. MRE, often called “palpating by imaging”, non-invasively identified tumours removable by simple versus complex surgeries, according to a study published in the... Read more
