Additionally, imaging and its derivatives have made an impact in knowledge of what represents a normal adult brain the evaluation of multiple disease processes, primar- and a normal developing brain along with an exp- ily in ischemia, but also in other conditions of the nation of artifacts seen in DW imaging makes this a brain. In most medical centers dif usion imaging is valuable book. It is noteworthy that the authors have no longer considered a sequence to be used in spe- chosen to abundantly illustrate the clinical material, cial circumstances, but rather it is employed as part drawing on pathologic correlations in a number of of routine MR imaging of the brain.

From the reviews of the second edition:

“In an expanded second edition of their clinically important book Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging of the Brain, Drs. Moritani, Ekholm, and Westesson, along with other contributors, have presented the radiologist with a highly readable and well-illustrated book. … for anyone reading through this book, the applicability of DWI and its derivatives to a wide range of abnormalities becomes apparent. … this book can be confidently recommended to all neuroradiologists, either as part of their personal library or as part of a departmental library.” (American Journal of Neuroradiology, September, 2009)
