  • If validated in future large studies, intra-operative, and, more importantly, pre-operative supine MRI could be expected to help the surgeon in accurately planning removal of the tumor and reducing the need for re-operation, which negatively impacts the patient emotionally, delays postoperative therapy, and increases infection rates and cost," stated Gombos.
