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

The concept of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is often difficult to grasp, even for Magnetic Resonance physicists. Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging uses extensive illustrations (not equations) to help readers to understand how DTI works. Emphasis is placed on the interpretation of DTI images, the design of DTI experiments, and the forms of application studies. The theory of DTI is constantly evolving and so there is a need for a textbook that explains how the technique works in a way that is easy to understand - Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging fills this gap. * Uses extensive illustrations to explain the concept of Diffusion Tensor Imaging * Easy to understand, even without a background in physics * Includes sections on image interpretation, experimental design and applications

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.

The21stInternationalConferenceonInformationProcessinginMedicalImaging(IPMI) washeldJuly5–10,2009at theCollegeofWilliam andMaryin Williamsburg,Virginia, USA. The conference was the latest in a series of biennial scienti?c meetings, the last being held in July of 2007 in the south of The Netherlands, during which new dev- opments in the acquisition, analysis, and use of medical images were presented. IPMI is one of the longest running conferences devoted to these topics in medical imaging. The ?rst IPMI conference was held in 1969, when a group of young scientists working in nuclear medicine gathered to discuss the current problems in their ?eld. Since that time the conference has expanded into other medical imaging acquisition modalities, including ultrasound, optics, magnetic resonance, and x-ray imaging techniques. IPMI is now widely recognized as one of the most exciting and in?uential meetings in m- ical imaging, with a unique emphasis on active participation from all attendees and a strong commitment to vigorous discussion and open debate. A wide variety of topics are covered at IPMI meetings, all within a single-track f- mat. This year 150 full-length manuscripts were submitted to the conference. Of these, 26 papers were selected for oral presentation and 33 were accepted as posters. Subm- sions were carefully reviewed by at least three members of the Scienti?c Review C- mittee, who evaluated the novelty, methodological development, and scienti?c rigor of each manuscript. A Paper Selection Committee, comprising the conference co-chairs and three senior investigators, took on the dif?cult task of creating a meeting program.
