The goal of surgical treatment for cerebral neoplasms is to maximize the extent of tumor resection while preventing or minimizing postoperative neurologic deficits. Preoperative functional MRI and DTI are highly effective, non-invasive methods of mapping eloquent cortical areas and critical white matter structures, so as to assess their relationship with a tumor or other pathological neural manifestations.

This is an example brain tumor patient dataset for public access. The images were stripped of all patient identifying information. The dataset contains Analyze functional images for motor and language tasks. There are also Analyze images for structural scans; an SPGR and a T2. These Analyze images can be used in SPM2 for fMRI analyses. SPM2 instructions are also included.
