We hypothesized that the Neurite Orientation Dispersion and Density Imaging (NODDI)-based tractography could improve the reconstruction of the fiber tracts that by tracking through regions of peritumoral edema. In visual comparison with diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), this model provided similar performance in healthy side and better performance in the corticospinal tract (CST) of the affected side. This technique may help neurosurgeons to define an optimal safe margin for total resection.
