Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book is well organized, succinctly written, and easy to read. . covers all the major topics of presurgical functional MR imaging and has a clear focus on practical issues, making it particularly useful for those who are less familiar with the field or the practitioner who wants to refine techniques and protocols. The authors fulfill their goal . . I have no difficulty in recommending this interesting book to all those who are involved in interpreting functional MR images in their clinical practice."
