This chapter discusses how the combination of blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) can be used for presurgical mapping of brain lesions such as brain tumors. The need to map both eloquent cortex and eloquent white matter in a complementary manner will be stressed. Both the underlying physical principles and the clinical applications of BOLD fMRI and DTI will be explained in detail with inclusion of several clinical examples that illustrate how the integration of these techniques is practically utilized.
