Recent Advances in Magnetic Resonance Imaging Making Neurosurgery Safe in the 21st Century

With the advent of the 21st century, neurosurgical mortality and morbidity has reduced in India. Some of the factors that have contributed to this are improved micro neurosurgical skills, instrumentation and training, modern anaesthesia drugs and techniques, and advances in neuroimaging. We can now study not only the anatomy but also the functional and the metabolic processes of the brain. We would like to highlight these advances in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technology that have made neurosurgery safer today.
