    Abstract

    48 patients with 50 supratentorial gliomas were studied by functional MRI for motor and language areas before operation. Reliability of fMRI was evaluated comparing with Wada test and the brain mapping and/or cortical stimulation during awake surgery. For detecting motor area, activation of fMRI presented a reliable correlation with brain mapping when patients could follow tasks. Combined examination of fMRI with Wada test is useful to detect the speech area of the brain.
