about this item

Diffusion-weighted

imaging (DWI) is an integral part of routine neuroimaging, used nearly

universally in brain MRIs, and more recently for the spine, spinal

cord, and head and neck. DWI provides clinically relevant information

on conditions including stroke, infection, and neoplasms. Diffusion

tensor imaging (DTI) is a powerful, newer technique with the potential

for multiple protocols, including the diagnosis of mild traumatic brain

injury and psychiatric disorders.Written by leading authorities in neuroradiology and radiology, Diffusion Weighted and Diffusion Tensor Imaging: A Clinical Guide

provides key points and summaries on the concepts and applications

required for proper implementation and interpretation of DWI and DTI.Key Features:

  • More than 600 high-quality illustrations
  • Protocols and applications from early childhood to older adulthood
  • Methods to differentiate normal versus pathological states
  • Brain edema pathophysiology and use of DWI to distinguish between cytotoxic and vasogenic edema
  • Utilization

    of DWI and DTI to diagnose trauma, white matter disease, tumors,

    cerebrovascular disease, and head, neck, and spine disorders

This

concise handbook is an invaluable resource for neuroradiologists and

radiologists, as well as fellows and residents in these disciplines.

With the expanding use of these procedures, neuroscientists,

neurologists, neurosurgeons, and psychiatrists will also find it

indispensable.
