For neurosurgeons, neuroimaging researchers and radiologists, neurologists, and physicists with an interest in advanced MR techniques, the ebook “Advanced MR Neuroimaging: From Theory to Clinical Practice” is an absolute must. Perfusion, diffusion, functional magnetic resonance imaging, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy are some examples of the remarkable advances in magnetic resonance techniques that have been responsible for some of the most significant accomplishments in the field of neuroimaging over the course of the past ten years. These methods have yielded extremely helpful insights into the metabolism of tissue, the microstructure of tissue, the microvasculature, and the connection of the brain.
These techniques were previously available primarily in research settings; nevertheless, they are now beginning to become a regular component of routine clinical practice in a wide variety of clinical MR systems. Nevertheless, in spite of a greater acceptance and a growing interest in the topic, there is still a dearth of a comprehensive body of knowledge on the issue. This lack of understanding explores the inherently complicated and physically challenging aspects of the procedures.
The fundamental concepts and ideas underlying perfusion, diffusion, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and functional MRI are the primary topics covered in this online textbook. In addition to this, it investigates the clinical uses of these methods and places an emphasis on the accompanying pitfalls and artifacts using a methodology that is both comprehensive and didactic.
The purpose of this electronic textbook is to bridge the gap between research applications and clinical practice. For neuroimaging researchers and radiologists, as well as neurosurgeons, neurologists, and physicists interested in advanced MR techniques, it will serve as an instructive manual. It will also serve as a helpful reference guide for experienced clinical scientists who are interested in optimizing their approach to multi-parametric imaging.
