Book Description :

The field of brain imaging is developing at a rapid pace and has greatly advanced the areas of cognitive and clinical neuroscience. The availability of neuroimaging techniques, especially magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetic source imaging (MSI) has brought about breakthroughs in neuroscience.To obtain comprehensive information about the activity of the human brain, different analytical approaches should be complemented. Thus, in "intermodal multimodality" imaging, great efforts have been made to combine the highest spatial resolution (MRI, fMRI) with the best temporal resolution (MEG or EEG). "Intramodal multimodality" imaging combines various functional MRI techniques (e.g., fMRI, DTI, and/or morphometric/volumetric analysis). The multimodal approach is conceptually based on the combination of different noninvasive functional neuroimaging tools, their registration and cointegration. In particular, the combination of imaging applications that map different functional systems is useful, such as fMRI as a technique for the localization of cortical function and DTI as a technique for mapping of white matter fiber bundles or tracts.This booklet gives an insight into the wide field of multimodal imaging with respect to concepts, data acquisition, and postprocessing. Examples for intermodal and intramodal multimodality imaging are also demonstrated.Table of Contents: Introduction / Neurological Measurement Techniques and First Steps of Postprocessing / Coordinate Transformation / Examples for Multimodal Imaging / Clinical Aspects of Multimodal Imaging / References / Biography

Book Description :

Over the last decade, some of the greatest achievements in the field of neuroimaging have been related to remarkable advances in magnetic resonance techniques, including diffusion, perfusion, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and functional MRI. Such techniques have provided valuable insights into tissue microstructure, microvasculature, metabolism and brain connectivity. Previously available mostly in research environments, these techniques are now becoming part of everyday clinical practice in a plethora of clinical MR systems. Nevertheless, despite growing interest and wider acceptance, there remains a lack of a comprehensive body of knowledge on the subject, exploring the intrinsic complexity and physical difficulty of the techniques. This book focuses on the basic principles and theories of diffusion, perfusion, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and functional MRI. It also explores their clinical applications and places emphasis on the associated artifacts and pitfalls with a comprehensive and didactic approach. This book aims to bridge the gap between research applications and clinical practice. It will serve as an educational manual for neuroimaging researchers and radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and physicists with an interest in advanced MR techniques. It will also be a useful reference text for experienced clinical scientists who wish to optimize their multi-parametric imaging approach.

Book Description :

New noninvasive MR imaging techniques are currently deeply changing the exploration of epileptic and functional networks in childhood epilepsies, as well as of the normally developing brain. While DTI can be used to look at the anatomical connectivity and at the microstructural changes that reflect the organization of an epileptic network, in addition to other techniques such as SPECT and PET, functional MRI is nowadays used routinely in the presurgical planning of focal epilepsies to assess the cortical organization of motor and language networks, helping to select surgical patients and plan the resection. Precise and robust motor mapping can be obtained in children comparably to adults. The assessment of language dominance by fMRI has reduced the need for invasive techniques such as the Wada test, provided age-related paradigms are being used in cooperating children (from 5 to 6 years of developmental age, with IQs of at least 60, and without behavioral disorders). Recent data indicate that the localizing value of language fMRI might be good when compared to cortical stimulation, and memory fMRI is emerging in children. However, invasive techniques are still necessary in difficult cases with high risk of postoperative deficit.

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.

Book Description :

Multiple Sclerosis is a common disease, affecting 2.5 million people world-wide. The clinical course is heterogeneous, ranging from benign disease in which patients live an almost normal life to severe and devastating disease that may shorten life. Despite much research, a fully effective treatment for MS is still unavailable and diagnostic techniques for monitoring MS disease evolution are much needed. As a non-invasive tool, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) plays a key role in MS diagnosis. Numerous MRI techniques have been proposed over the years. Among most widely used are conventional T1-weighted (T1W), T2-weighted (T2W) and FLuid Attenuated Inversion Recovery (FLAIR) imaging techniques. However their results do not correlate well with neurological findings. Several advanced MRI techniques are also used as research tools to study MS. Among them are magnetization transfer contrast imaging (MT), MR spectroscopy (MRS), and Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) but they have not penetrated to clinical arena yet. Gradient Echo Plural Contrast Imaging (GEPCI) developed in our laboratory is a post processing technique based on multi-echo gradient echo sequence. It offers basic contrasts such as T1W images and T2* maps obtained from magnitude of GEPCI signal, and frequency maps obtained from GEPCI signal phase. Phase information of Gradient Echo MR signal has recently attracted much attention of the MR community since it manifests superior gray matter/ white matter contrast and sub-cortical contrast, especially at high field (7 T) MRI. However the nature of this contrast is under intense debates. Our group proposed a theoretical framework - Generalized Lorentzian Approach - which emphasizes that, contrary to a common-sense intuition, phase contrast in brain tissue is not directly proportional to the tissue bulk magnetic susceptibility but is rather determined by the geometrical arrangement of brain tissue components (lipids, proteins, iron, etc.) at the cellular and sub-cellular levels - brain tissue "magnetic architecture". In this thesis we have provide first direct prove of this hypothesis by measurement of phase contrast in isolated optic nerve. We have also provided first quantitative measurements of the contribution to phase contrast from the water-macromolecule exchange effect. Based on our measurement in protein solutions, we demonstrated that the magnitude of exchange effect is 1/2 of susceptibility effect and to the opposite sign. GEPCI technique also offers a scoring method for monitoring Multiple Sclerosis based on the quantitative T2* maps generated from magnitude information of gradient echo signal. Herein we demonstrated a strong agreement between GEPCI quantitative scores and traditional lesion load assessment. We also established a correlation between GEPCI scores and clinical tests for MS patients. We showed that this correlation is stronger than that found between traditional lesion load and clinical tests. Such studies will be carried out for longer period and on MS subjects with broader range of disease severity in the future. We have also demonstrated that the magnitude and phase information available from GEPCI experiment can be combined in multiple ways to generate novel contrasts that can help with visualization of neurological brain abnormalities beyond Multiple Sclerosis. In summary, in this study, we 1) propose novel contrasts for GEPCI from its basic images; 2) investigate the biophysical mechanisms behind phase contrast; 3) evaluate the benefits of quantitative T2* map offered by GEPCI in monitoring disease of Multiple Sclerosis by comparing GEPCI results to clinical standard techniques; 4) apply our theoretical framework - Generalized Lorentzian Approach - to better understand phase contrast in MS lesions.
