Intra-parotid Facial Nerve by MRI Tractography: Clinical vs Radiologic Description in Parotid Tumors  May 13, 2019

Surgery is the main treatment for parotid tumol, benign or malignant pathologies. The procedure requires a trunk search and a facial nerve dissection along its intraparotid length. This intervention entails a risk of facial paralysis.

MRI tractography is a new imaging technique that can characterize nerve fibers and their path.

The interest would be to allow the surgeon to best prepare the parotidectomy by locating the tumor in relation to the trunk and all the branches of the facial nerve.
