Region’s First MRI-Guided Brain Biopsy At UC San Diego Health System

Clark Chen, MD, PhD, neurosurgeon, shares groundbreaking advances in MRI-guided biopsy of brain abnormalities such as glioblastoma. Advanced technologies at UC San Diego Health System such as Restriction Spectrum Imaging (RSI), MRI-based stereotactic guidance, and MRI-compatible biopsy needles enable neurosurgeons to precisely sample abnormal brain tissue with less risk to healthy structures. These advanced imaging approaches ensure that pathologists make a definitive diagnoses based on diseased tissue.
