Methods in molecular medicine; 124
Contributors from radiology, imaging sciences, and several medical and biological specialties introduce MRI to biological scientists. A first chapter sets out the fundamentals, keeping technical and mathematical details to a minimum. Subsequent chapters focus on unique attributes of the imaging technology, introduce current work in evolving areas of molecular and cellular imaging, and include methodological details when possible. The emphasis is on anatomical detail; using endogenous contrast mechanisms to provide information on the functional status of tissue; and using exogenous contrast material to extract information regarding the spatial distribution, tissue function, metabolic activity, and to monitor expression. The disk contains all the figures used in the book.
