 MRI
Clinical MR Neuroimaging 
Diffusion, Perfusion and Spectroscopy

Description:

The physiological magnetic resonance techniques of diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging and spectroscopy offer insights into brain structure, function and metabolism. Until recently, they were mainly applied within the realm of medical research, but with their increasing availability on clinical MRI machines, they are now coming into clinical practice for the evaluation of neuropathology in individual patients. This book provides the reader with a thorough review of the underlying physical principles of each of these methods, as well as comprehensive coverage of their clinical applications. Topics covered include single- and multiple-voxel MRS techniques, MR perfusion based on both arterial spin labelling and dynamic bolus tracking approaches, and diffusion-weighted imaging, including techniques for mapping brain white matter fiber bundles. Clinical applications are reviewed in depth for each technique, with case reports included throughout the book. Attention is also drawn to possible artifacts and pitfalls associated with these techniques.

Reviews:

This book is indeed a welcomed addition to the rapidly growing knowledge base of clinical neuroimaging, as it will undoubtedly provide medical professionals with a clear and informative reference to emerging state-of-the-art neuroimaging applications. Clinical MR Neuroimaging: Diffusion, Perfusion and Spectroscopy by J. Gillard et al. is a wonderful reference book for physicians and radiologists looking for comprehensive coverage of clinical applications, as well as for biomedical engineers, MR physicists, and other more interested in the underlying physical principles of these novel MR techniques." Health Physics, Dardo Tomasi

"This is a long overdue text that clarifies and simplifies the application of contemporary MR diffusion imaging (especially diffusion tensor imaging and white matter tractography), MR perfusion imaging and MR spectroscopy. Its greatest value is its comprehensive treatment of the theory of these imaging methods without resorting to advanced mathematical descriptions that would be beyond the level of many practicing physicians. I have not seen a comparable text on the market."--Doody's Review ServiceŽ

"The physiologic and functional MR techniques described in this book are here to stay and already used in the field, beyond academic sites. The editors achieve their goal of providing detailed reference tutorials for neuroimagers to understand current uses. This book is worth the cost as a reference for those who do neuroimaging or refer patients for neuroimaging studies." - Radiology, Allan J. Fox, MD
