Nearly 2 million brain surgeries are performed annually in the US. Digital technologies such as tractography, a novel method for building computer models of the nerve paths through the brain, and data analytics are revolutionizing the operating room for both surgeons and patients. This panel will discuss significant software and hardware advances in tractography for building surgical planning and intra-operative guidance systems that can produce better outcomes for patients.
