MR Imaging and Spectroscopic Specifics and Protocols
Different protocols for MR imaging and spectroscopy are presented as well as special imaging features of inflammatory diseases of the cerebral parenchyma as described in this book. Advanced MR techniques such as DWI, PerfMRI, DTI, MT, as well as MRS, and their use in inflammatory diseases of the cerebral parenchyma are presented.
