Functional Brain Imaging Updates on the Horizon

JAMA. 2017;318(18):1750. doi:10.1001/jama.2017.17314

Two teams of researchers are poised to bring new functional brain imaging technologies to the clinic.

First, within a few years, physicians could have a way to monitor brain function at the bedside of hospitalized infants, something that is not currently possible with large functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) machines.

European researchers have developed a portable brain scanning technology called functional ultrasound imaging (fUSI). The fUSI system employs a flexible, noninvasive head mount and combines video-electroencephalographic recording with ultrafast Doppler (UfD) imaging of brain microvasculature.
