Data: Clinicians' use of fMRI
Language fMRI developed as a research tool, and with validation migrated to the clinic. Anecdotally we observed a split in the confidence and certainty with which researchers and clinicians use fMRI. In this survey we provided the first detailed evaluation of how clinicians are actually using and interpret language fMRI to guide neurosurgery in epilepsy.
We are currently completing analysis of a paired survey in which analysts completing fMRI described the tasks, analysis procedures and practical details of how language fMRI is actually being undertaken.
