Pilot Investigation of Using Electrocorticogram (ECoG) in Predicting Eloquent Cortex and Post-Operative Functional Outcomes in Patients with Brain Tumors
MD Anderson Study Status
This pilot clinical trial studies how well electrocorticography works in mapping functional brain areas during surgery in patients with brain tumors. Using a larger than the standard mapping grid currently used during brain tumor surgery or a high-definition grid for electrocorticogram brain mapping may help doctors to better identify which areas of the brain are active during specific limb movement and speech during surgery in patients with brain tumors.
