About Me
Dr. Mojgan Hodaie is a Professor in the Department of Surgery, University of Toronto and the Greg Wilkins-Barrick Chair in International Surgery at the University Health Network. Dr. Hodaie’s scientific research focuses primarily on advanced methods of MRI imaging in functional neurosurgery. She has published key papers focusing on microstructural changes in trigeminal neuralgia, methods of small fiber tractography and structural neuroanatomical changes in the CNS gray and white matter in facial neuropathic pain. Her most recent body of work includes the addition of artificial intelligence techniques to advance the understanding of trigeminal neuralgia, focusing on analyzing medical imaging data and identifying structural and functional changes in the brain associated with this condition. Through this computational approach, Dr. Hodaie has contributed to the identification of biomarkers enhancing the precision of diagnosis, and treatment options for neuropathic pain.
Dr Hodaie is currently serving as Secretary of the World Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery and was appointed as a Fellow of the Canadian Academy for Health Research in September 2023.
