About the Authors
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides non-invasive information about the brain's blood flow, water movement and biochemical abnormalities following stroke. Advances in MRI are transforming the investigation and treatment of cerebrovascular disease. Echoplanar techniques with diffusion and perfusion weighted imaging--together with developments in magnetic resonance spectroscopy and angiography--are replacing CT scanning as the diagnostic modality of choice. In this profusely illustrated book, world leaders in these technologies review the scientific basis and clinical applications of MRI in stroke.

    • State of the art coverage of techniques that are revolutionising the way stroke is investigated
    • Editors and contributors are world leaders
    • Profusely illustrated

    Reviews & endorsements

    [A] comprehensive and balanced contribution to our understanding of the utility and appropriate context of newer imaging tools in stroke." Jonathan H. Gillard, Neurology

    "Concise but complete, this well-written, well-edited, and well-illustrated volume admirably fulfills the promise of its title." Journal of Neurosurgery

    "Each chapter is very readable...This book provides a good overview of the use of MRI in stroke and is of educational benefit to both clinicians and radiologists involved in the care of patients with stroke..." Neuroradiology

    "This highly informative and well-referenced volume, which takes us from basics to future research in a steady fashion, making it an attractive reference to complement any general or vascular neurology library." Archives of Neurology

    "This text is a reasonably priced and valuable addition to the library of any clinician." The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences
