About this book

Ultra High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Prof. Pierre-Marie Robitaille, The Ohio State University

Prof. Lawrence J. Berliner, University of Denver

Ultra High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging (UHFMRI) has undergone tremendous growth since its introduction in the late 1990’s. Within a few years, it is anticipated that no less than 50 UHFMRI instruments will be in operation. The phenomenal growth of this modality has been driven in large measure by the tremendous signal to noise available with Ultra High Fields. Many challenges remain in order to bring UHFMRI into the mainstream of radiological diagnostic techniques. Nonetheless, with ground-breaking applications, UHFMRI is destined to promote great advancements in clinical medicine.

Ultra High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging covers the theoretical, experimental and clinical aspects of UHFMRI, and examines both its advantages and technical hurdles. Ultra High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging is an invitation to the new generation of MRI scientists to invest in the wonderful modality which is UHFMRI.

Key Features:

  • Forward by Paul C. Lauterbur, University of Illinois, 2003 Nobel Prize in Medicine for Discoveries in Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Historical Overview of Ultra High Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Extensive Discussions of all Engineering Aspects of UHFMRI Including Magnet Design and Construction, Gradient Technology, Shim Coils and Ancillary Hardware.
  • Presentation of System Sitting Considerations.
  • Experimental and Theoretical Aspects of RF Coil Design for Ultra High Fields.
  • Insight into Magnetic Susceptibility and UHFMRI Applications Including fMRI, Spectroscopy, Microscopy and High Resolution Imaging.
  • Clinical Imaging with Particular Emphasis on Stroke and Tumor Evaluation.

About the Editors:

Dr. Pierre-Marie Robitaille is a Professor of Radiology at The Ohio State University. He has extensive experience in MRI and was responsible for the design and assembly of the first UHFMRI system.

Dr. Lawrence J. Berliner is currently Professor and Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Denver. Dr. Berliner retired from Ohio State University where he spent a 32-year career in the area of biological magnetic resonance (EPR and NMR). He is the Series Editor for Biological Magnetic Resonance which was launched in 1979.
