Phase imaging and QSM abet the magnitude fMRI by revealing and quantifying the draining veins of the activation areas. Consequently, QSM sheds light on calibrating the % BOLD change and, when combined with CBF, has a potential to determine the basis of negative BOLD signal; in particular if it is due to increased oxygenation during rest periods or reduced oxygenation during the activation.
