Diffusion Tensor Imaging: A Practical Handbook Pdf This publication offers an summary of the practical areas of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), from understanding based on this technique through choice of the ideal protocols, trouble-shooting information quality, and assessing DTI information optimally. DTI is a noninvasive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) method for visualizing and measuring tissue microstructure according to diffusion. The publication discusses the theoretical foundation underlying DTI and innovative techniques based on higher-order versions and multi-shell diffusion imaging.
It covers the technical implementation of DTI; derivation of information in DTI information; and a variety of clinical applications, such as neurosurgical planning and the evaluation of brain tumors. Its functional utility is improved by choice schemes and a completely annotated DTI brain atlas, such as colour fractional anisotropy maps and 3D tractography reconstructions of white matter fiber bundles. Featuring contributions from leading experts in the discipline of DTI, Diffusion Tensor Imaging: A Practical Handbook is a valuable source for radiologists, neuroradiologists, MRI technicians and clinicians.
