This book will familiarize the reader with the basic principles of perfusion MR imaging. Relevant technical aspects, contrast agents, and the postprocessing of images are presented, and imaging protocols are provided. Dedicated software for personal use on the postprocessing of images is provided on a CD-ROM containing hundreds of images and movie clips that demonstrate all concepts.In addition to the technical details of acquisition and postprocessing, numerous examples of the application of these tools in the clinical setting are also shown. In particular, the book includes a discussion of the role of perfusion MRI in the current evaluation of cerebrovascular disease, including an integrative approach using diffusion in conjunction with perfusion imaging.Covers:* all relevant technical aspects of perfusion MR imaging* imaging protocols* application of these tools in a clinical setting* integration of diffusion imaging with perfusion imaging for enhanced diagnostic capabilities This text also addresses the role of perfusion MRI in the assessment of cerebral neoplasia, challenges and opportunities for treatment that tumors present, and the particular strengths of perfusion MRI, such as its relatively high resolution and possible microvascular specificity. For both newcomers and experienced practitioners, this is a "nuts-and-bolts" description of an important new technique.
