BACKGROUND Blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) plays an important role in identifying functional cortical areas of the brain, especially in patients with gliomas. This study aimed to assess the value of fMRI in presurgical planning and functional outcome of patients with gliomas in the motor cortical areas. METHODS Twenty-six patients with gliomas in the motor cortex were recruited in the study. Before operation, fMRI was performed in each patient… CONTINUE READING
