About this book

The clinical applications of diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DW-MRI) in the body are rapidly evolving. This volume highlights state-of-the-art techniques for performing DW-MRI measurement in the body and addresses important practical issues. Key points are highlighted that will help radiologists and technologists to acquire high-quality images for disease assessment and to adapt the technique to their own clinical practice or research. The major clinical applications of DW-MRI in the body, both oncological and non-oncological, are extensively illustrated, providing readers with a broad insight into the growing uses of the technique. The final section addresses future developments, considering the potential importance of the technique in relation to drug development and the ways in which DW-MRI might be combined with other functional imaging techniques to further improve disease assessment.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“For those of you who thought diffusion-weighted MRI was only the realm of the brain, this book may come as a pleasant surprise. … the book focuses on how the technique is currently being applied to the rest of the body. … Each chapter has a wealth of example images and figures to demonstrate the points and techniques covered by each author. … a high quality book with lots of material that will appeal to a wide audience, irrespective of their knowledge of DWI.” (Gary Liney, RAD Magazine, December, 2010)

“The reader will note that the bulk of the text deals with DW-MRI in oncology, highlighting the pros and cons of the technique in this field … . the book represents a breakthrough in this domain of radiology and will help the reader to better understand and focus on all sorts of problems one might encounter using this technique which is fully open to future development and should become a very important adjuvant in patients care.” (Giampiero Beluffi, La Radiologia Medica, Vol. 116, 2011)
