About these proceedings


The purpose of this book is to provide some basic information regarding the fundamentals of magnetic resonance (MR) for all those who are less familiar with the technique and interested in MR spectroscopy and its possible applications in research and clinical practice. It will stimulate the reader to look more closely at the various topics covered by the contributors to this volume: tumor cell metabolism, kidney function, organ viability. Finally, several applications of high-field spectroscopy and imaging are illustrated. The book focusses on proven and possible clinical applications of MR in nephrourology: renal cell carcinoma, metabolic investigation of the kidney and pretransplant assessment of organ viability. The examples are thoroughly discussed and abundantly illustrated. The reader will benefit from this book by receiving a review of research and clinical aspects of MR simultaneously.
