A method to correct intra-operative brain shift was developed. The resulting method involves the use of ultrasound intraoperatively to update patient specific pre-operative MRI scans using a physics-based dynamical model. The imaging and modeling process was quantitatively validated using a phantom that realistically simulates the brain and its shifting patterns resulting from several of the clinical factors that occur during a brain operation.
