Schematic drawing of the experimental surgical brain trauma model and MRI demonstration. (a) Illustration of a structural drawing demonstrating the rat brain cut along a horizontal plane and showing surgical trauma to the frontal lobe in relation to the bregma. (b) Demonstration by MRI of surgical brain trauma with implantation of a collagen-glycosaminoglycan matrix. The exact location of the graft was visualized in vivo by MR T2-weighted images as a hypointense area located in the left frontal cortex, which matches the intended surgical implantation area.
