Jefferson University Hospitals

Diffusion Tensor Imaging

Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience is one of the first medical centers in the U.S. to develop and begin using translational, interactive 3-D technology such as diffusion tensor imaging.

This imaging technology, performed by neuroradiologists, can help our surgeons better determine the location of tumors for removal. The 3-D mapping also helps guide surgeons during epilepsy procedures to see exactly where electrodes have been placed in the brain and portions of the brain that may have to be removed to help stop seizures.
