Brain temperature (BT) had traditionally been discussed whether it may be a simple parameter depending on body (core) temperature or it may regulate the neural activities; however, recent reports with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system demonstrated BT was strongly associated with the cerebral perfusion and metabolism in patients with ischemic change. Here, we reviewed BT measurement techniques with a MRI system and discussed the pathologic conditions causing BT alteration relating to the cerebral perfusion and metabolism.
