Over the last decade, presurgical mapping using functional neuroimaging techniques — and in particular fMRI — has made considerable progress. FMRI is now approaching clinical practice and is no longer just used for research applications. One of the best established clinical applications is presurgical functional neuroimaging with its contributions to surgical planning and performance and possibly to the prediction of postoperative outcome.
