The 15th Annual Meeting theme is on tradition, innovation, and moral courage. I will be leading a scientific session entitled 3D Tug of War: Neuroimaging, Policy, and MCS.

Studies of functional brain imaging with various neurotechnologies have disclosed exciting findings that may improve our understanding of how consciousness is mapped in the brain. Such research advancements demonstrate a potential for neuroimaging to be included as a component in the clinical assessment of disorders of consciousness. However, they do not currently have sufficient evidentiary support to be included as a diagnostic option in routine clinical care. In line with the 2012 themes of tradition, innovation and moral courage, this panel discusses neuroimaging in this historically neglected patient population and raises awareness in the context of health policy specific to the management of health care.
