In some cases, tumors infiltrate parts of the brain involved in movement or language.

In such cases, functional intraoperative mapping can help in identifying the exact location of these functional areas in the brain, enabling the surgeon to avoid these areas and thereby minimize the risk to harm to the patient during surgery.

This mapping process often requires the patients to remain awake during the surgery, especially in the case of speech mapping.
