Abstract
The goal of modern surgery is always to reduce the risks of surgery and anesthesia to a minimum. Our new method is carried out in local anesthesia, the surgical procedure is reduced to burrhole surgery and the procedure itself is real time controlled by the magnetic resonance tomography. The program allows the user to superpose at all times the isotherms to the recent MR picture with the brain tumor. The recent algorithm uses the water proton chemical shift. It possesses both a high sensitivity and a tissue independent effect and it also leads to an excellent method of monitoring temperature changes.
