Brain tumors are increasingly treated as early as possible. Especially low-grade brain tumors are often best treated before they start to disrupt brain function. Often a tumor is located near brain areas that are important for daily function, so-called eloquent cortex, posing a risk of collateral damage following treatment of the tumor. Optimal treatment in those cases benefit from functional MRI scans. Analysis of functional MRI scans is rather complicated and is mostly performed only in larger hospitals.
Braincarta has developed a method to take care of the analysis in a standardized, automated an certified manner. For more information on fMRI for clinical use see here
