The use of real time ultrasound in the neurosurgical operating room can enhance the ability to localize intracerebral masses, allow accurate needle biopsies, diminish the amount of potential damage to normal brain tissue, show the results of tumor resection, and help in the placement of ventricular and cyst shunts. The end result makes the surgical procedure faster, safer, and more accurate.
