Tetrahedral Mesh
Andriy Fedorov Wins Top Award at Graduate Research Symposium

Neurosurgeons rely on MRI images to map the location of brain tumors and guide their work in separating tumors from healthy brain tissue. Yet the surgery itself causes the brain to change shape, shifting the tumor’s location. Ideally the surgeon could view real-time scans throughout the surgery and follow the tumor’s changing location precisely. Andriy Fedorov is demonstrating the potential for just this kind of solution.
