The physiological magnetic resonance
techniques of diffusion imaging, perfusion
imaging and spectroscopy offer insights
into brain structure, function and metabolism.
This book provides the reader with a thorough review of the underlying physical
principles of each of these methods, as well as comprehensive coverage of their                  Neurodegenerative Diseases
clinical applications. Attention is also drawn to possible artifacts and pitfalls                Neurobiology, Pathogenesis and Therapeutics
associated with these techniques. This book is an essential reference work for
radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons and psychiatrists who use these techniques,            Edited by Flint Beal
as well as medical researchers, residents and fellows.                                           Cornell University, New York
