Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has been adopted almost universally by disciplines that endeavor to understand how the brain works. As basic scientists tune the technique, clinicians are increasingly able to apply brain mapping with fMRI to their clinical practice. We present here a guide to using fMRI in a clinical setting. We discuss the basic considerations of functional brain mapping in patients with brain tumors including: patient screening and training, paradigm design, data analysis and interpretation of the fMRI scans.
