Diffusion MRI Outside the Brain Book Review:

Recent advances in MR technology permit the application of diffusion MRI outside of the brain. In this book, the authors present cases drawn from daily clinical practice to illustrate the role of diffusion sequences, along with other morphological and functional MRI information, in the work-up of a variety of frequently encountered oncological and non-oncological diseases. Breast, musculoskeletal, whole-body, and other applications are covered in detail, with careful explanation of the pros and cons of diffusion MRI in each circumstance. Quantification and post-processing are discussed, and advice is provided on how to acquire state of the art images, and avoid artifacts, when using 1.5- and 3-T magnets. Applications likely to emerge in the near future, such as for screening, are also reviewed. The practical approach adopted by the authors, combined with the wealth of high-quality illustrations, ensure that this book will be of great value to practitioners.

Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging Book Review:

The concepts behind diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) are commonly difficult to grasp, even for magnetic resonance physicists. To make matters worse, a many more complex higher-order methods have been proposed over the last few years to overcome the now well-known deficiencies of DTI. In Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging: And Higher Order Models, these concepts are explained through extensive use of illustrations rather than equations to help readers gain a more intuitive understanding of the inner workings of these techniques. Emphasis is placed on the interpretation of DTI images and tractography results, the design of experiments, and the types of application studies that can be undertaken. Diffusion MRI is a very active field of research, and theories and techniques are constantly evolving. To make sense of this constantly shifting landscape, there is a need for a textbook that explains the concepts behind how these techniques work in a way that is easy and intuitive to understand—Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging fills this gap. Extensive use of illustrations to explain the concepts of diffusion tensor imaging and related methods Easy to understand, even without a background in physics Includes sections on image interpretation, experimental design, and applications Up-to-date information on more recent higher-order models, which are increasingly being used for clinical applications

High resolution Diffusion MRI of Targeted Regions Book Review:

Diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an MRI method that provides information about random microscopic motion of water molecules in biological tissues. In addition to offering a higher sensitivity for the diagnosis of white matter diseases such as stroke and multiple sclerosis, and producing connectivity maps of the brain, it is a promising prognostic tool in the assessment and treatment response monitoring of cancer in the body. While high in-plane resolution is desirable for all diffusion MRI applications, it is particularly essential for imaging of small structures. Unfortunately, the performance of diffusion MRI techniques is often hindered by a variety of factors including susceptibility variations, field inhomogeneities and bulk physiologic motion. This thesis presents a reduced field-of-view (FOV) single-shot echo-planar imaging (ss-EPI) method to address these problems and enable high-resolution diffusion MRI of targeted regions. The proposed method utilizes a two-dimensional (2D) echo-planar radio-frequency (RF) excitation pulse to achieve a sharp reduced-FOV profile, while still allowing contiguous multi-slice imaging and suppressing the fat signal. Extensive clinical evaluation of the technique demonstrated that sub-mm diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) on human spinal cords is feasible with minimal artifacts. High-resolution fiber tractography of the spinal cord successfully visualized the connectivity between the cord and the medulla oblongata, delineating internal structures such as gray/white matter. In vivo DWI of the larynx, breast and prostate validated the effectiveness of this technique in providing detailed depiction of the morphology outside the central nervous system. When the exponential diffusion attenuation is combined with high spatial resolution, DWI may suffer from poor signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The last part of this thesis presents an optimization strategy for the DWI parameters as a function of the imaging SNR. Specifically, the optimum b-value is shown to be a monotonically increasing function of the imaging SNR, with a convergence asymptote identical to the previously proposed values in literature. The effects of T2 relaxation are also incorporated for a more accurate optimization. In vitro and in vivo experiments demonstrated reduced error in ADC estimations and improved SNR in the diffusion-weighted images with the proposed technique.

Diffusion Tensor Imaging Book Review:

This book provides an overview of the practical aspects of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), from understanding the basis of the technique through selection of the right protocols, trouble-shooting data quality, and analyzing DTI data optimally. DTI is a non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique for visualizing and quantifying tissue microstructure based on diffusion. The book discusses the theoretical background underlying DTI and advanced techniques based on higher-order models and multi-shell diffusion imaging. It covers the practical implementation of DTI; derivation of information from DTI data; and a range of clinical applications, including neurosurgical planning and the assessment of brain tumors. Its practical utility is enhanced by decision schemes and a fully annotated DTI brain atlas, including color fractional anisotropy maps and 3D tractography reconstructions of major white matter fiber bundles. Featuring contributions from leading specialists in the field of DTI, Diffusion Tensor Imaging: A Practical Handbook is a valuable resource for radiologists, neuroradiologists, MRI technicians and clinicians.

Advanced Diffusion Encoding Methods in MRI Book Review:

The medical MRI community is by far the largest user of diffusion NMR techniques and this book captures the current surge of methods and provides a primary source to aid adoption in this field. There is a trend to adapting the more advanced diffusion encoding sequences developed by NMR researchers within the fields of porous media, chemical engineering, and colloid science to medical research. Recently published papers indicate great potential for improved diagnosis of the numerous pathological conditions associated with changes of tissue microstructure that are invisible to conventional diffusion MRI. This book disseminates these recent developments to the wider community of MRI researchers and clinicians. The chapters cover the theoretical basis, hardware and pulse sequences, data analysis and validation, and recent applications aimed at promoting further growth in the field. This is a fast moving field and chapters are written by key MRI scientists that have contributed to the successful translation of the advanced diffusion NMR methods to the context of medical MRI, from global locations.

Diffusion Weighted and Diffusion Tensor Imaging A Clinical Guide Book Review:

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.
