Our lab utilizes functional, diffusion, and perfusion MRI to provide pre-operative planning for patients with brain tumors. The goal of our work is to identify key areas of the brain, such as areas for language, motor, sensory, and auditory function, prior to treatment so that neurosurgical interventions can accurately target the tumor and maximally preserve surrounding brain tissue. We also investigate the presence of neurovascular uncoupling and cortical plasticity upon the setting of brain tumors as well as characterize advanced imaging methods for clinical use.
