Intraoperative sonography is becoming a well-recognized addition in neurosurgery. Intraoperative sonography can be used for assistance in tumor resection, evaluation of vessels with color flow Doppler, reduction in surgery time, decreased cost, and real-time scanning without radiation administered to the patient. With technological advances occurring constantly, sonography as well as neurosurgery will continually improve. Neurosurgery is one of the most sensitive and delicate surgeries performed. Intraoperative sonography in neurosurgery can assist in tumor localization, vascular malformation detection, and anatomical evaluation of relationships between a tumor and normal brain tissue. In light of the technological advances as well as lower cost, intraoperative sonography is becoming more common in neurosurgery.
