Explains how to read advanced MRI easily by precise correlation of clinical 3T MRI with 2-4 mm thick sections of the brain
Includes more than a thousand images displaying nuclear anatomy, fiber tractography, and vascularization of the brain stem and cerebellum in axial, coronal, and sagittal planes
Presents organized series of diagrams and images to teach with a minimum of text
Prepares you for coming advances in technology with 9.4 T images of the brain stem that rival light microscopy
Advanced MRI requires a sophisticated knowledge of anatomy. This volume gives you that knowledge by correlating the thin-section brain anatomy with corresponding clinical 3 T MR images in axial, coronal, and sagittal planes. You’ll quickly learn the anatomic bases for advanced MR imaging.
The international team of authors correlates advanced neuromelanin imaging, susceptibility-weighted imaging, and diffusion tensor tractography with clinical 3 and 4 T MRI. This illustrates the precise nuclear and fiber tract anatomy imaged by these techniques. Each region of the brain stem is then analyzed with 9.4 T MRI to show the anatomy of the medulla, pons, midbrain, and portions of the diencephalonin with an in-plane resolution comparable to myelin- and Nissl-stained light microscopy (40-60 microns).
The atlas is expertly designed as a teaching text, using carefully organized diagrams and images to teach with a minimum of text. You’ll learn how to read advanced MRI easily by precise correlation of clinical 3T MRI with 2-4 mm thick sections of the brain.
