Your brain is unique, which means that it is not possible to accurately find the precise location of specific speech or movement areas in your brain using anatomy alone. Using advanced scanning and computer technology, fMRI allows us to find and measure the precise locations of these key areas and enabling us to build a detailed map of your brain that shows the areas that are involved in vital functions. This valuable information may then be used to better understand the possible outcomes of neurosurgery and to guide surgical planning.
