What does vlFC ROI stand for?

According to the article, vlFC obviously stands for ventrolateral frontal cortex. But ROI?


(A) The right vlFC ROI. Dorsally it included the inferior frontal sulcus and, more posteriorly, it included PMv; anteriorly it was bound by the ... paracingulate sulcus and ventrally by the lateral orbital sulcus and the border between the dorsal insula and the opercular cortex. (B) A schematic depiction of the result of the 12 cluster parcellation solution using an iterative parcellation approach. We subdivided PMv into ventral and dorsal regions (6v and 6r, purple and black). We delineated the IFJ area (blue) and areas 44d (gray) and 44v (red) in lateral pars opercularis. More anteriorly, we delineated areas 45 (orange) in the pars triangularis and adjacent operculum and IFS (green) in the inferior frontal sulcus and dorsal pars triangularis. We found area 12/47 in the pars orbitalis (light blue) and area Op (bright yellow) in the deep frontal operculum. We also identified area 46 (yellow), and lateral and medial frontal pole regions (FPl and FPm, ruby colored and pink).

You're going to need a specialist. I've only come across Republic Of Ireland for ROI.

I can make guesses, but that's all they are, Retina(l) Optic(al) Image(s)(ing) or something to that effect.

The right vlFC (= right ventrolateral frontal cortex) ROI (= region of interest) - that's what I found out using google and the context of that article.

@Walter Hinteler,

Who'd be a translator? Wink

It does stand for Region of Interest in medical terminology as one poster has noted as well as in fields related to computer imaging of all kinds. In medical terminology it can also mean Release if Information and is a term used under HIPPA as well as internally in Informatics.

It is interesting that you haven't run into this term before as medical liturature seems to often be the field you are translating.

vIFC = ventral inferior frontal cortex
ROI = Region Of Interest

Sorry,of course: Release if Information
should have been: Release Of Information
