Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a technique used to assess the functionality of specific parts of the brain which are usually closely related to a pathology, in order to identify the potential risk of any deficits associated with planned surgery. This allows surgeons and their patients to make a more informed decision about treatment options, improving surgical outcomes.
