Defines the fundamental principles behind fMRI and diffusion tractography
Presents the optimal fMRI paradigms appropriate for the patient and clinical situation
Describes how to deliver fMRI paradigms correctly and monitor patients for adequate compliance
Unlike most MRI procedures, functional MRI (fMRI) studies require interaction between the radiology professionals administering the test and the patient, whose neurological status must be assessed. Additionally, an appropriate paradigm must be selected based on the neurological assessment and prior MRI exams, the paradigm must be delivered to and successfully performed by the patient while undergoing the fMRI study, and there is analysis to be done on the fMRI data after the exam. Clinical fMRI and Diffusion Tractography presents extensive, case-based clinical information on all aspects of fMRI studies that radiologists need to follow to ensure optimal clinical output is achieved. Written by experts from the fMRI Laboratory at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, chapters patient preparation, fMRI hardware and scanner basics, as well as information on diffusion tractography. The series of unique clinical case studies presented in the book will be a valuable resource for all neuroradiologists to better understand the optimal using of functional imaging and diffusion tractography for the diagnosis of brain disorders and disease.
