About this book

Functional MRI (fMRI) and the basic method of BOLD imaging were introduced in 1993 by Seiji Ogawa. From very basic experiments, fMRI has evolved into a clinical application for daily routine brain imaging. There have been various improvements in both the imaging technique as such as well as in the statistical analysis. In this volume, experts in the field share their knowledge and point out possible technical barriers and problems explaining how to solve them. Starting from the very basics on the origin of the BOLD signal, the book covers technical issues, anatomical landmarks, presurgical applications, and special issues in various clinical fields. Other modalities for brain mapping such as PET, TMS, and MEG are also compared with fMRI. This book is intended to give a state-of-the-art overview and to serve as a reference and guide for clinical applications of fMRI.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The demand for clinical functional MRI studies is outstripping the supply of formally trained individuals to fill this need. fMRI: Basics and Clinical Applications seeks to address this critical need by providing the interested novice with the tools necessary to develop such a program. … This book accomplishes its goal of providing an overview of how fMRI can be applied to clinical applications. … I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about the field of clinical fMRI.” (American Journal of Neuroradiology, January, 2012)

“This solid overview of functional magnetic resonance imaging starts with an introduction to the basic technologic and anatomic aspects, and continues with reviews of current clinical applications and areas of developing use, including multimodality mapping techniques. … This will be a useful resource for practicing or resident neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychologists, or radiologists who are looking to gain greater understanding of fMRI … . This book will be welcomed by those looking for an overview of the current state of the art of fMRI … .” (Katherine Noe, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2010)
