Functional MRI (fMRI)

A non-invasive MRI technique, able to predict certain cognitive and neurological outcomes after surgery.

A non–invasive MRI technique, fMRI is used to locate eloquent brain tissue related to speech, vision, movement, etc., It is used to guide neurosurgical planning and tailor surgery for intrinsic brain tumours to avoid neurological deficit and improve patient outcomes.

fMRI offers potential further applications to measure brain recovery processes, to optimally stage and monitor treatments.

We are the first private service to offer this to our patients in the UK.

In addition, patients are offered a complementary MRI technique called diffusion tractography imaging which provides additional information about the location of important brain pathways.
