Doctor Ardian Hana is a consultant neurosurgeon at the Free University of Brussels (Université libre de Bruxelles / ULB) in Brussels, Belgium. His research is focused on neurosurgical oncology and diffusion tensor imaging in neurosurgical interventions. After finishing his medical studies at the University of Heidelberg in Germany, he worked in many West European countries like Luxemburg, The Netherlands and Germany. During this time he published many papers especially on the use of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) during neurosurgical operations. The use of DTI might help the neurosurgeons avoid damage in patients with different lesions in eloquent areas of the brain.
