This three-part series of Neuro Sunrise sessions will focus on "individualized brain MRI." Each session provides a focused review suitable for a broad audience on one widely-used or emerging area of Neuroimaging. This specific sunrise course is targeted to researchers and clinicians interested in understanding and developing diffusion tractography and functional MRI methods for neurosurgical planning. Core techniques and their shortcomings will be discussed in the context of practical clinical cases.

Target Audience
Trainees, technologists and clinicians desiring a broad-scope view of current and emerging techniques for single-subject analysis.

Educational Objectives
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Review examples of techniques in current clinical use for diffusion tractography and fMRI for neurosurgical planning; and
-Summarize gaps between available techniques and current clinical practice.
