Improved sensitivity and specificity for resting state and task fMRI with multiband multi-echo EPI compared to multi-echo EPI at 7T

  • Whole brain comparison of multiband multi-echo and multi-echo EPI with task and RS fMRI at 7T.
  • Multiband multi-echo has increased specificity and sensitivity with respect to multi-echo.
  • Detection of resting state networks improves with multiband multi-echo and after FIX correction.
  • Expected activation clusters for task fMRI data only appear for MBME data with FIX correction.
