abstract

In this Hot Topics presentation, David Roberts describes recent work in image-guided neurosurgery. Gliomas can present a challenge for surgical removal because they invade normal brain tissue that may be highly functional, so it is crucial to develop techniques for improved visualization of the tumor's margins. Surgical removal of a brain tumor can be aided using a technique in which tumor tissue is fluoresced during surgery. Roberts received an A.B. degree from Princeton University, an M.A. degree from Oxford University, and an M.D. degree from Dartmouth Medical School. He interned in surgery at the University of Utah and did his neurosurgical residency at Dartmouth. In 1982, he jointed the staff of the Hitchcock Clinic and the faculty of Dartmouth Medical School, at the rank of Assistant Professor. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1988 and Professor in 1994. In 1997 he became Chair of the Section of Neurosurgery at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Director of the neurosurgical residency training program. While retaining those responsibilities, he was appointed in 2000 to the position at Dartmouth Medical School of Senior Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs, and the following year to the Alma Hass Milham Distinguished Chair in Clinical Medicine. His present research interests are in epilepsy, stereotaxy and computer-assisted surgery. He has been the author or co-author of more than 100 publications and has co-edited six books and monographs. © (2015) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
