Title:
Preoperative language mapping by repetitive navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation and diffusion tensor imaging fiber tracking and their comparison to intraoperative stimulation. 
Abstract:
Repetitive navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) can be used for preoperative language mapping, but it still suffers from comparatively high sensitivity and low specificity when compared to direct cortical stimulation (DCS). Therefore, this study evaluates whether the additional consideration of rTMS-based diffusion tensor imaging fiber tracking (DTI FT) for identifying language-positive brain regions improves specificity when compared to DCS.We performed rTMS, rTMS-based DTI FT, an...    »
