Cerebral Infiltration, whose design was supervised by Professor Maxime Descoteaux, was created in preparation for brain surgery performed successfully by Dr. David Fortin.

The prize-winning image has since gone viral, posted on a number of websites and published in numerous scientific journals, including Science, Reader’s Digest, Scientific American Mind, Discover Magazine, and Medical Tribune.
