Preventative action prior to brain surgery – ultra-high-field MRI reveals language centres in the brain in much more detail

(Vienna ) In a new investigation by the University Department of Neurology, it has been possible for the first time to demonstrate that the areas of the brain that are important for understanding language can be pinpointed much more accurately using ultra-high-field MRI (7 Tesla) than with conventional clinical MRI scanners. This helps to protect these areas more effectively during brain surgery and avoid accidentally damaging it. ... Full story
