    The introduction of techniques that permit visualization of the human nervous system is one of the foremost advances in neuroscience and brain-related research. Among the most recent significant developments in this respect are ultra-high field MRI and the image post-processing technique known as track density imaging (TDI). It is these techniques (including super-resolution TDI) which represent the two major components of 7.0 Tesla MRI ? Brain White Matter Atlas. This second edition of the atlas has been revised and updated to fully reflect current application of these technological advancements in order to visualize the nervous system and the brain with the finest resolution and sensitivity. Exquisitely detailed color images offer neuroscientists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons a superb resource that will be of value both for the purpose of research and for the treatment of common brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis.

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a versatile imaging tool that can be used to detect changes in brain hemodynamics that accompany neuronal activity. This ability to observe both anatomy and the structures that participate in specific functions is often referred to as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Echo planar imaging (EPI) is the most widely used data acquisition method for fMRI. Functional images are often distorted because EPI is highly sensitive to field inhomogeneities, eddy currents, and gradient delays. These distortions often lead to image misregistration, and this is an impediment to correctly interpreting functional studies, and to neurosurgical planning. Many methods have been developed to address this. However, none yields anatomical and functional images that may be directly overlaid onto each other with no post-processing. This dissertation demonstrates that automatic, inherent self co-registration is achieved when optimized flyback EPI with echo time shifting (ETS) is used for both functional and anatomical images. fMRI experiments validate the proposed method, and the result is high-quality functional and high-resolution anatomical images that are inherently self co-registered. EPI acquisitions are also prone to timing and phase errors that give rise to image ghosting. ETS is an effective ghost correction method in EPI. Although ETS corrects for ghosting in a robust, non-iterative, and automatic manner, it does so at the expense of increasing total scan time. This dissertation proposes a simple, yet effective scheme to increase the efficiency of ETS by acquiring partial echoes during the idle wait times present in ETS. Using the proposed technique, higher resolution images are acquired when total scan time is fixed. Alternately, shorter scan times are possible when the in-plane resolution is fixed. Equations that predict the expected improvement in resolution are derived and shown to be accurate through simulations and experiments. In vivo images obtained using conventional ETS and the proposed method show that the time savings obtained with the proposed method do not result in any visible degradation in image quality. Signal changes caused by cardiac pulsation and respiratory fluctuation are also a major confound in fMRI. These time-locked signal changes, also referred to as "physiological noise, " decrease the sensitivity of fMRI to neuronally-induced signal fluctuations. To date, no method exists that compensates for these detrimental effects in 3D fMRI acquisitions. This dissertation presents a novel algorithm that compensates for physiological noise in 3D echo-planar fMRI. The proposed method utilizes composite property mapping and efficient root-solving to estimate physiologically-induced signal fluctuations in 3D k-space data. These signal fluctuations are subsequently regressed from k-space data. Results show that the estimated signal fluctuations have significant power in the cardiac and respiratory frequency bands. Further, resting-state fMRI experiments show an increase in the number of activated voxels when the proposed compensation algorithm is employed. This is accompanied by an increase in the average z-score of activated voxels, and a more Gaussian distributed voxel time-course. In conclusion, this dissertation describes advances in data acquisition and post- processing in 3D fMRI that are easy to implement. Further, promising experimental results suggest the efficacy of all the proposed methods.

    The literature on the late effects of cancer treatment is widely scattered in different journals since all major organ systems are affected and management is based on a variety of medical and surgical treatments. The aim of ALERT Adverse Late Effects of Cancer Treatment is to offer a coherent multidisciplinary approach to the care of cancer survivors. The central paradigm is that cytotoxic multimodal therapy results in a perpetual cascade of events that affects each major organ system differently and is expressed continually over time. Essentially, radiation and chemotherapy are intense biologic modifiers that allow for cancer cure and cancer survivorship but accelerate senescence of normal tissues and increase the incidence of age-related diseases and second malignant tumors. Volume 1 of this two-volume work focuses on the general concepts and principles relevant to late effects and on the dynamic interplay of molecular, cytologic and histopathologic events that lead to altered physiologic and metabolic functions and their clinical manifestations. Chapters are also included on legal issues, economic aspects, nursing, psychological issues and quality of life.

    Cryo-Electron tomography (CET) is the only imaging technology capable of visualizing the 3D organization of intact bacterial whole cells at nanometer resolution in situ. However, quantitative image analysis of CET datasets is extremely challenging due to very low signal to noise ratio (well below 0dB), missing data and heterogeneity of biological structures. In this thesis, we present a probabilistic framework to align CET images in order to improve resolution and create structural models of different biological structures. The alignment problem of 2D and 3D CET images is cast as a Markov Random Field (MRF), where each node in the graph represents a landmark in the image. We connect pairs of nodes based on local spatial correlations and we find the "best'' correspondence between the two graphs. In this correspondence problem, the "best'' solution maximizes the probability score in the MRF. This probability is the product of singleton potentials that measure image similarity between nodes and the pairwise potentials that measure deformations between edges. Well-known approximate inference algorithms such as Loopy Belief Propagation (LBP) are used to obtain the "best'' solution. We present results in two specific applications: automatic alignment of tilt series using fiducial markers and subtomogram alignment. In the first case we present RAPTOR, which is being used in several labs to enable real high-throughput tomography. In the second case our approach is able to reach the contrast transfer function limit in low SNR samples from whole cells as well as revealing atomic resolution details invisible to the naked eye through nanogold labeling.

    The presence of oriented features in images often conveys important information about the scene or the objects contained; the analysis of oriented patterns is an important task in the general framework of image understanding. As in many other applications of computer vision, the general framework for the understanding of oriented features in images can be divided into low- and high-level analysis. In the context of the study of oriented features, low-level analysis includes the detection of oriented features in images; a measure of the local magnitude and orientation of oriented features over the entire region of analysis in the image is called the orientation field. High-level analysis relates to the discovery of patterns in the orientation field, usually by associating the structure perceived in the orientation field with a geometrical model. This book presents an analysis of several important methods for the detection of oriented features in images, and a discussion of the phase portrait method for high-level analysis of orientation fields. In order to illustrate the concepts developed throughout the book, an application is presented of the phase portrait method to computer-aided detection of architectural distortion in mammograms.

    Unlike normal tissues, solid tumors have a metabolic phenotype that favors energy-inefficient glycolysis rather than more efficient, but oxygen consuming, oxidative phosphorylation, even when oxygen levels are adequate. This metabolic shift towards glycolysis, discovered by Warburg in 1924, has been studied for more than 80 years, but the mechanism of the phenomena is still unclear due to lack of tools for in vivo investigation. Dynamic nuclear polarization in combination with the recent development of a dissolution process that retains the increased polarization into the liquid state opened new possibilities for the real-time investigation of in vivo metabolism using C13 magnetic resonance spectroscopy. In particular, hyperpolarized [1-13C]pyruvate, a substrate occupying a key nodal point in the glucose metabolic pathway, has been successfully demonstrated as a neoplasm biomarker via elevated lactate labeling in tumors. However, additional downstream products of pyruvate metabolism, such as that occur in mitochondria of brain tumor, have been veiled due to low signal-to-noise ratios. The first part of the thesis is on the quantitative assessment of mitochondrial function in normal rat brain and glioma by detecting 13C-bicarbonate following the bolus injection of [1-13C]pyruvate. The feasibility of quantitatively detecting 13C-bicarbonate in tumor-bearing rat brain is demonstrated for the first time. The optimized protocol for chemical shift imaging and high concentration of hyperpolarized [1-13C]pyruvate were used to improve measurements of lactate and bicarbonate in C6 glioma-transplanted rat brains. Moreover, the immediate response to dichloroacetate treatment, which upregulates pyruvate flux to acetyl-CoA, is also presented. It is demonstrated that the simultaneous detection of lactate and bicarbonate provides a tool for a more comprehensive analysis of glioma metabolism and the assessment of metabolic agents as anti-cancer drugs. In the second part of the thesis, further investigation on mitochondrial metabolism, including tricarboxylic acid cycle, is presented by acquiring single-time point chemical shift imaging data from rat brain in vivo after administration of highly concentrated [2-13C]pyruvate. A C13 surface coil optimized for rat brain was built to increase sensitivity of signal detection. [5-13C]glutamate, [1-13C]acetyl carnitine, and [1-13C]citrate were detected besides [2-13C]pyruvate and [2-13C]lactate, for the first time in brain. Change of the tricarboxylic acid cycle activity in brain was also investigated by infusing dichloroacetate. The increase of [5-13C]glutamate was detected primarily from brain, whereas [1-13C]acetyl carnitine was increased in peripheral tissues after the infusion of dichloroacetate. The third part focuses on dynamic measurements of hyperpolarized substrates to obtain exchange rates in addition to concentrations, and proposes the apparent conversion rate as a new metric to detect glioma by comparing the conversion rates in glioma, normal appearing brain, and basilar vasculature in female Sprague-Dawley rats with C6 glioma cells implanted. Whereas single-time point measurements give a snapshot image of tissue metabolism, the estimated apparent rate constant yielded a better differentiation between the tissue types than the lactate-to-pyruvate ratio, which has been the most common metric used to date. This study demonstrates the feasibility of quantitatively detecting C13-labeled bicarbonate and glutamate in vivo, permitting the assessment of dichloroacetate-modulate changes in pyruvate dehydrogenase flux in both normal rat brain and glioma. The simultaneous detection of both lactate dehydrogenase and pyruvate dehydrogenase activities will likely improve our ability to both assess and monitor metabolic therapies of brain and other cancers by providing non-invasive in vivo measures of glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation.

    The number of surgical procedures performed on the brain, head, neck, and spine has increased markedly in recent decades. As a result, postoperative changes are being encountered more frequently on neuroradiological examinations and constitute an important part of the workflow. However, the imaging correlates of postsurgical changes can be unfamiliar to neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons and are sometimes difficult to interpret. This book is written by experts in the field and contains an abundance of high-quality images and concise descriptions, which should serve as a useful guide to postsurgical neuroradiology. It will familiarize the reader with the various types of surgical procedure, implanted hardware, and complications. Indeed, this work represents the first text dedicated to the realm of postoperative neuroimaging. Topics reviewed include imaging after facial cosmetic surgery; orbital and oculoplastic surgery; sinus surgery; scalp and cranial surgery; brain tumor treatment; psychosurgery, neurodegenerative surgery, and epilepsy surgery; skull base surgery including transsphenoidal pituitary resection; temporal bone surgery including various ossicular prostheses; orthognathic surgery; surgery of the neck including the types of dissection and flap reconstruction; CSF diversion procedures and devices; spine surgery; and vascular and endovascular neurosurgery.

    The field of nuclear medicine has evolved rapidly in recent years, and one very important aspect of this progress has been the introduction of hybrid imaging systems. PET-CT has already gained widespread acceptance in many clinical settings, especially within oncology, and now SPECT-CT promises to emulate its success. Useful applications of this new approach have been identified not only in oncology but also in endocrinology, cardiology, internal medicine, and other specialties. This atlas, which includes hundreds of high-quality images, is a user-friendly guide to the optimal use and interpretation of SPECT-CT. The full range of potential SPECT-CT applications in clinical routine is considered and assessed by acknowledged experts. The book is designed to serve as a reference text for both nuclear physicians and radiologists; it will also provide fundamental support for radiographers, technologists, and nuclear medicine and radiology residents. Following the editors' other atlases on PET-CT and non-FDG PET-CT, the Atlas of SPECT-CT completes a trilogy offering up-to-date information and guidance on the full spectrum of hybrid imaging.

    The use of ultrasound guidance to perform diagnostic and therapeutic injections is growing at a rapid rate, as is the evidence to support its use. Even with the increased popularity of ultrasound, there remains a lack of formal training or a standard reference book. Atlas of Ultrasound Guided Musculoskeletal Injections fills this void in the literature and will be useful to physiatrists, orthopedists, rheumatologists, pain medicine and sports medicine specialists alike. Broken down by anatomic structure and heavily illustrated, this book is both comprehensive and instructive. The Editors and their contributors break down the basics (both the fundamentals of ultrasound to needle visibility and the role of injections) and explore ultrasound-guided injection for structures in the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, hip and groin, knee, ankle and foot, and spine. Using a clear, heavily illustrated format, this book describes the relevant clinical scenarios and indications for injection, the evidence to support ultrasound use, relevant local anatomy, injection methods, and pearls and safety considerations. It will be a valuable reference for trainees and experienced clinicians alike, for experienced sonographers or those just starting out.

    This book explains in detail the potential value of the hybrid modalities, SPECT-CT and PET-CT, in the imaging of cardiac innervation in a wide range of conditions and diseases, including ischemic heart disease, diabetes mellitus, heart failure, amyloidosis, heart transplantation, and ventricular arrhythmias. Imaging of the brain-heart axis in neurodegenerative disease and stress and of cardiotoxicity is also discussed. The roles of the various available tracers are fully considered, and individual chapters address radiopharmaceutical development under GMP, imaging physics, and kinetic modeling software. Highly relevant background information is included on the autonomic nervous system of the heart and its pathophysiology, and in addition future perspectives are discussed. Awareness of the importance of autonomic innervation of the heart for the optimal management of cardiac patients is growing, and there is an evident need for objective measurement techniques or imaging modalities. In this context, Autonomic Innervation of the Heart will be of wide interest to clinicians, researchers, and industry.

    "In "Avoiding Errors in Radiology", the authors provide 116 real-life examples of errors from both diagnostic and interventional radiology. In each case, the authors discuss in detail the context in which the errors were made, the resulting complications, and strategies for future prevention. With the cases organized by body region, the authors begin with the cranium and then move to cases of the breast, chest and abdomen, spinal column, musculoskeletal and vascular systems. This book offers the readers: - To inform themselves "without an audience" about possible errors that can happen to every radiologist - To analyze the possible causes of errors and wrong decisions in 116 case studies with over 940 illustrations and to transfer the strategies described to avoid errors into their own work - To limit errors and to deal with them more competently and confidently"--Provided by publisher.

    To date, diet programs and medical therapies for the treatment of obesity have had limited success. Bariatric surgery, however, provides a means of effective weight loss for many of those with morbid obesity. Most of these weight loss procedures are performed with a variety of techniques that continue to evolve. Each technique is associated with unique challenges and complications and it is important for the clinician to be knowledgeable about the endoscopic management of these patients.

    This book is a comprehensive and authoritative text on the subject of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). Imaging experts from the most medically advanced areas of the world discuss the basic principles of this modality in detail while maintaining a focus on the needs of cardiovascular imagers who wish to learn more about this subject but do not have a strong background in physics. CMR is now considered a clinically important imaging modality for patients with a wide variety of cardiovascular diseases. Recent developments have influenced a wide variety of cardiovascular imaging applications, many of which are now routinely used in clinical practice in CMR laboratories around the world. That it is non-invasive and lacks ionizing radiation exposure make CMR uniquely important for patients whose clinical condition requires serial imaging follow-up. Basic Principles of Cardiovascular MRI: Physics and Imaging Techniques includes a wealth of CMR examples in the form of high-resolution still images. Each imaging technique is discussed in separate chapters that include the physics and clinical applications (with cardiovascular examples) of that particular technique. As such, this book will be essential for cardiovascular medicine specialists and trainees , cardiovascular physicists, and clinical cardiovascular imagers.

    The second edition of this book is intended as a definitive text on biliary tract and gallbladder cancers. Specifically, it will serve as a single-source reference on the current knowledge base for the multidisciplinary management of such cancers and thus covers epidemiological, surgical, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy approaches. Akey feature is the demonstration of the impact of cutting-edge technical knowledge on treatment; for example, interventional radiology techniques, novel surgical approaches, and image-guided radiation therapy are all extensively discussed. Diagnosis is also considered in detail, with coverage of novel serum biomarkers, pathologic staging, molecular profiling, and the full range of current and emerging imaging strategies. Further chapters are devoted to epidemiology, the role of growth factor pathways and signal transduction, and histopathology and molecular pathogenesis. Experienced practitioners in a range of specialties will find this amply illustrated book to be an invaluable source of information on the newest diagnostic and treatment techniques in biliary tract and gallbladder cancer, yet it is also sufficiently concise to offer an introduction to the field for students and community practitioners.

    MRI provides the best means of imaging the bone marrow directly and of non-invasively assessing its composition. Normal age-related bone marrow changes, alterations related to red marrow reconversion, and pathological bone marrow processes generally conform to certain patterns that reflect the underlying marrow changes and can be clearly recognized on MR images. In addition to conventional pulse sequences, advanced MRI techniques such as Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MRI and Diffusion-Weighted Imaging depict marrow changes at the microvascular and cellular level respectively. This book provides radiologists with in-depth information on the MRI appearances of normal, abnormal and treated marrow following a structured, pattern-based approach. MRI findings for various diseases that affect the bone marrow, particularly those of a malignant nature, are presented in detail. MRI pattern recognition not only offers a systematic approach to image interpretation and diagnosis but also has prognostic implications with regard to some disease entities. Each chapter includes a wealth of high-quality images, together with Key Points summarizing the most important information. In addition to radiologists, practitioners with an interest in hematology and oncology will find this textbook-atlas to be a valuable resource for the latest, clinically relevant advances in bone marrow imaging.

    Quantitative ultrasound (QUS) of bone is a relatively recent research field. The research community is steadily growing, with interdisciplinary branches in acoustics, medical imaging, biomechanics, biomedical engineering, applied mathematics, bone biology and clinical sciences, resulting in significant achievements in new ultrasound technologies to measure bone, as well as models to elucidate the interaction and the propagation of ultrasonic wave in complex bone structures. Hundreds of articles published in specialists journals are accessible from the Web and from electronic libraries. However, no compilation and synthesis of the most recent and significant research exist. The only book on QUS of bone has been published in 1999 at a time when the propagation mechanisms of ultrasound in bone were still largely unknown and the technology was immature. The research community has now reached a critical size, special sessions are organized in major international meetings (e.g., at the World Congress of Biomechanics, the annual meetings of the Acoustical Society of America, International Bone Densitometry Workshop, etc...). Consequently, the time has come for a completely up to date, comprehensive review of the topic. The book will offer the most recent experimental results and theoretical concepts developed so far and is intended for researchers, graduate or undergraduate students, engineers, and clinicians who are involved in the field. The central part of the book covers the physics of ultrasound propagation in bone. Our goal is to give the reader an extensive view of the mathematical and numerical models as an aid to understand the QUS potential and the types of variables that can be determined by QUS in order to characterize bone strength. The propagation of sound in bone is still subject of intensive research. Different models have been proposed (for example, the Biot theory of poroelasticity and the theory of scattering have been used to describe wave.

    "Elastography is a noninvasive imaging technique that detects tumors based on their stiffness compared to normal tissue. It uses ultrasound technology and can be performed during an ultrasound examination of the breast. It can dramatically reduce the number of breast biopsies performed. This book introduces the techniques of breast elastography followed by a detailed description for each of the techniques, highlighting their pros and cons. This is followed by a section on how to perform each of the techniques. The third section discusses the methods of interpretation for each technique, and the final section presents cases studies highlighting the pros and cons of each technique and how to avoid pitfalls in interpretation. It is written to appeal to the beginner as well as the experienced user"--Provided by publisher.

    The availability and diffusion of high-performance technologies has strengthened the role of CT angiography and MR angiography as simple, reliable techniques for the characterization and treatment planning of the principal diseases of the cardiovascular system, an understanding of which has become essential for all radiologists. The aim of this book is to provide concise but thorough information and guidance on the main methods and examination techniques used when performing high-quality CT angiography and MR angiography studies in a broad range of clinical settings. The lucid text is supported by a large number of case studies and is rich in advice on image interpretation and practical suggestions for the evaluation and reporting of the examinations. Importantly, a central feature is detailed comparison of the advantages and limitations of the two techniques in various diseases and vascular regions; the book will therefore enable both trainee and expert radiologists to understand their indications and to select the most appropriate technique in different contexts.

    This updated manual is a practical and compact introductory text to CMR. It includes a didactic overview of the physics of magnetic resonance imaging, cross-referencing consistently to the clinical chapters and describing the relationship between an understanding of basic MRI physics and producing better images. Building on the first edition, the authors review the practicalities of CMR from referral to screening, set-up of the study and reporting, including numerous tips and tricks on how the reader can improve the quality of their images. The book outlines the most commonly acquired image components used in CMR and details how CMR is used in clinical practice. It covers the most common referrals for CMR imaging in a structured way with imaging protocols and case examples for each indication. Throughout the book, the authors have used graphs and tables to highlight important learning aspects. The emphasis of each chapter is on providing practical, hands-on information, making this book a key resource for all training and certifying for the use of CMR. Cardiovascular MR Manual, 2e is of use to all clinicians working in cardiology or imaging for developing a general understanding of the diagnostic information that can be obtained from CMR, the indications for referral, and the contraindications and limitations of the technique.

    Accurate control of the radio-frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is necessary to ensure patient safety and provide high-quality diagnostic capabilities. Precise control is however becoming increasingly difficult to achieve, given the recent trends toward high fields and transmitter array systems. At high fields, imaging is performed in a frequency regime where the wavelength is on the order of, or smaller than, the dimensions of the human body. This leads to prominent wave behavior, non-uniform field patterns, and increased power deposition. Multi-element transmitter array systems with independent phase and amplitude control of their elements support methods that can mitigate these problems. However, in turn, they demand high fidelity RF reproduction and may lead to undesired electromagnetic interactions between elements of the arrays and with interventional devices. Frequency-offset Cartesian feedback can be used to address all of these issues. In combination with the use of polyphase error amplifiers (to implement a low-IF control bandwidth), Cartesian feedback can be used with MRI power amplifiers and transmit coils to increase the fidelity of RF reproduction, without the in-bandwidth DC-offsets and quadrature mismatches that may lead to imaging artifacts such as bright spots and ghosting. In addition, the control system, which includes autotuning circuitry for stability and vector multipliers circuitry for feedback manipulation, can be used to tune the series output impedance of these amplifiers, thereby reducing the likelihood of interactions between elements of transmit array systems. Furthermore, a miniaturized variation of the control system (called Active Cable Trap) can be used on guidewires to suppress undesired currents elicited by coupling with the RF fields of the transmit coils. In an era of rapid progress in high field MRI for clinical applications, the frequency offset Cartesian feedback method and system thus promises to address many of the challenges faced by designers of multi-element transmitter array systems.

    With the rapid growth in the cost of imaging and political and market pressures to contain health care costs, physicians are being encouraged to order only appropriate radiologic exams and to rationalize their choices. The American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria have emerged as a widely accepted standard by which the appropriate use of radiologic exams is judged. This book is designed to enable physicians and trainees to learn the ACR recommendations in a clinically relevant and intellectually stimulating way. More than 400 clinical scenarios are organized into ten modules based on organ systems. Each scenario is addressed by means of an interactive quiz in which the reader is invited to select the best option from a number of imaging modalities. Each choice is given a numerical rating of appropriateness, with accompanying comments when necessary. Correlative images of pathologies are included to enhance the reader's appreciation of the diagnostic power of the modality in question. This book is ideal as a tool both for self-study and for quantitative evaluation of students' knowledge.

    SPECT/CT cameras have considerably improved diagnostic accuracy in recent years. Such cameras allow direct correlation of anatomic and functional information, resulting in better localization and definition of scintigraphic findings. In addition to this anatomic referencing, CT coregistration provides superior quantification of radiotracer uptake based on the attenuation correction capabilities of CT. Useful applications of SPECT/CT have been identified not only in oncology but also in other specialties such as orthopedics and cardiology. This book covers the full spectrum of clinical applications of SPECT/CT in diagnosis and therapy planning of benign and malignant diseases. Opening chapters discuss the technology and physics of SPECT/CT and its use for dosimetry. The role of SPECT/CT in the imaging of a range of pathologic conditions is then addressed in detail. Applications covered include, among others, imaging of the thyroid, bone, and lungs, imaging of neuroendocrine tumors, cardiac scintigraphy, and sentinel node scintigraphy. Individual chapters are also devoted to therapy planning in selective internal radiation therapy of liver tumors and bremsstrahlung SPECT/CT. Readers will find this book to be an essential and up-to-date source of information on this invaluable hybrid imaging technique.

    Dynamic susceptibility-contrast perfusion-weighted imaging (DSC PWI) is a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that measures the delivery of arterial blood to the tissue capillary bed using a contrast agent. DSC PWI can reveal important information in stroke patients by assessing hypoperfused brain tissue, while in tumor patients it is used to evaluate the tumor vasculature. For clinical applications, DSC PWI relies on both accurate and rapid image formation. Gradient-echo echo-planar imaging (EPI) is the most commonly used MRI pulse sequence for DSC PWI, mainly due to its fast image acquisition capability, a relatively high contrast-to-noise ratio, and its availability on most clinical MRI systems. However, quantification of perfusion parameters with gradient-echo EPI remains challenging. Gradient-echo EPI is most sensitive to larger vessels, including arteries and veins. These measurements do not provide specific information about true perfusion within the microvasculature, the site of oxygen and nutrient extraction to brain tissue. To acquire perfusion measurements that are more confined to the microvasculature, spin-echo EPI acquisition techniques have been proposed. Spin-echo EPI is most sensitive to smaller vessels, providing a clear advantage over gradient-echo EPI. Unfortunately, spin-echo EPI suffers from lower sensitivity to the contrast agent passage, and the determination of arterial contrast agent concentrations required for quantitative perfusion MRI remains an unsolved problem when using spin-echo EPI data. In the first part of this dissertation, a combined approach for simultaneous spin- and gradient-echo (SAGE) perfusion MRI is presented. The proposed imaging technique combines the advantages of higher overall sensitivity to contrast agent passage of gradient-echo EPI with superior microvascular selectivity of spin-echo EPI, resulting in complementary perfusion information. The combined method enabled improved detection of abnormal brain perfusion compared to conventionally processed DSC PWI data, as illustrated in cases of stroke and brain tumors. Specifically, reduced sensitivity to larger blood vessels of spin-echo data generated from SAGE perfusion MRI measurements improved the visibility of hypoperfused tissue. In the second part, the gradient-echo and spin-echo signal contributions to the proposed SAGE perfusion MRI acquisition technique are analyzed in detail. The development of an optimized pair of MRI excitation and refocusing pulses enhanced the contrast-to-noise ratio of the spin-echo signal. Moreover, augmented perfusion parameter estimation improved the accuracy of both gradient-echo and spin-echo signals to reduce perfusion quantification errors. In the last part, implications of contrast agent leakage from the brain vasculature are discussed. Considerable contrast agent extravasation, caused by blood-brain barrier leakage commonly observed in brain tumors and subacute strokes, results in additional quantification errors of brain perfusion parameters. To mitigate these errors, pharmacokinetic modeling of contrast agent distribution was applied to SAGE perfusion MRI data. Intravascular contrast agent concentrations could then be separated from extravascular concentrations, resulting in leakage-corrected perfusion data. Moreover, the applied pharmacokinetic modeling approach facilitated the extraction of permeability parameters. The combined evaluation of perfusion and permeability parameters, derived from SAGE perfusion MRI data, showed potential utility in brain tumor imaging with the goal of improving the diagnostic value of perfusion MRI in the assessment of brain tumor progression.

    The major progress in computer vision allows us to make extensive use of medical imaging data to provide us better diagnosis, treatment and predication of diseases. Computer vision can exploit texture, shape, contour and prior knowledge along with contextual information from image sequence and provide 3D and 4D information that helps with better human understanding. Many powerful tools have been available through image segmentation, machine learning, pattern classification, tracking, reconstruction to bring much needed quantitative information not easily available by trained human specialists. The aim of the book is for both medical imaging professionals to acquire and interpret the data, and computer vision professionals to provide enhanced medical information by using computer vision techniques. The final objective is to benefit the patients without adding to the already high medical costs.

    Architectural distortion is an important and early sign of breast cancer, but because of its subtlety, it is a common cause of false-negative findings on screening mammograms. Screening mammograms obtained prior to the detection of cancer could contain subtle signs of early stages of breast cancer, in particular, architectural distortion. This book presents image processing and pattern recognition techniques to detect architectural distortion in prior mammograms of interval-cancer cases. The methods are based upon Gabor filters, phase portrait analysis, procedures for the analysis of the angular spread of power, fractal analysis, Laws' texture energy measures derived from geometrically transformed regions of interest (ROIs), and Haralick's texture features. With Gabor filters and phase-portrait analysis, 4,224 ROIs were automatically obtained from 106 prior mammograms of 56 interval-cancer cases, including 301 true-positive ROIs related to architectural distortion, and from 52 mammograms of 13 normal cases. For each ROI, the fractal dimension, the entropy of the angular spread of power, 10 Laws' texture energy measures, and Haralick's 14 texture features were computed. The areas under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves obtained using the features selected by stepwise logistic regression and the leave-one-image-out method are 0.77 with the Bayesian classifier, 0.76 with Fisher linear discriminant analysis, and 0.79 with a neural network classifier. Free-response ROC analysis indicated sensitivities of 0.80 and 0.90 at 5.7 and 8.8 false positives (FPs) per image, respectively, with the Bayesian classifier and the leave-one-image-out method. The present study has demonstrated the ability to detect early signs of breast cancer 15 months ahead of the time of clinical diagnosis, on the average, for interval-cancer cases, with a sensitivity of 0.8 at 5.7 FP/image. The presented computer-aided detection techniques, dedicated to accurate detection and localization of architectural distortion, could lead to efficient detection of early and subtle signs of breast cancer at pre-mass-formation stages.

    Content-based image retrieval (CBIR) is the process of retrieval of images from a database that are similar to a query image, using measures derived from the images themselves, rather than relying on accompanying text or annotation. To achieve CBIR, the contents of the images need to be characterized by quantitative features; the features of the query image are compared with the features of each image in the database and images having high similarity with respect to the query image are retrieved and displayed. CBIR of medical images is a useful tool and could provide radiologists with assistance in the form of a display of relevant past cases. One of the challenging aspects of CBIR is to extract features from the images to represent their visual, diagnostic, or application-specific information content. In this book, methods are presented for preprocessing, segmentation, landmarking, feature extraction, and indexing of mammograms for CBIR. The preprocessing steps include anisotropic diffusion and the Wiener filter to remove noise and perform image enhancement. Techniques are described for segmentation of the breast and fibroglandular disk, including maximum entropy, a moment-preserving method, and Otsu's method. Image processing techniques are described for automatic detection of the nipple and the edge of the pectoral muscle via analysis in the Radon domain. By using the nipple and the pectoral muscle as landmarks, mammograms are divided into their internal, external, upper, and lower parts for further analysis. Methods are presented for feature extraction using texture analysis, shape analysis, granulometric analysis, moments, and statistical measures.

    In 1994 the European Society of Urogenital Radiology (ESUR) set up a committee to consider the safety of contrast media used for diagnostic imaging. Subsequently the committee questioned ESUR members, reviewed the literature, proposed guidelines, and discussed these proposals with participants at the annual symposia of the society. The end result of this work was the successful first edition of this book, published in 2006, which was followed by an equally successful second edition in 2009. This third edition not only fully updates the previous edition, but also includes new chapters on complex topics such as use of contrast media in children and practical aspects of off-label contrast media use. The authorship includes members, past members, and non-members of the Contrast Media Safety Committee. Comprehensive consideration is given to the many different safety issues relating to iodine-based contrast media, gadolinium-based contrast media, microbubbles for ultrasound, and barium sulfate. The text includes chapters on both acute and delayed non-renal adverse reactions and on renal adverse reactions. All of the questions frequently raised in radiological practice are addressed. This book, presented in a handy, easy-to-use format, provides an invaluable, unique, and unparalleled source of information.

    This book examines in detail the diagnostic impact of contrast-enhanced ultrasound in the evaluation of urinary tract pathology, paying particular attention to the diagnostic gain that may be expected in relation to other imaging techniques such as CT and MRI. The role of contrast-enhanced ultrasound is evaluated in a range of pathologies, including ischemia, trauma, inflammation, cystic lesions, and solid tumors, as well as in the imaging of anatomic variants. New applications, for example monitoring of kidney transplantation, assessment of urinary bladder lesions, and diagnosis of vesico-ureteric reflux, are also covered. The presented cases, drawn from the authors' personal clinical caseload, include images obtained using multimodality techniques, sometimes with 3D CT reconstruction. The authors' own experiences are compared with the most recent reports in the scientific literature.

    This beautifully illustrated book combines a detailed exposition of the anatomy and function of the cranial nerves with practical coverage of clinical concepts for the assessment and differential diagnosis of cranial nerve dysfunction. An introductory chapter provides a brief overview of cranial nerve anatomy and function, skull base anatomy, classification of pathologies, and imaging approaches. Each of the twelve chapters that follow is devoted to in-depth coverage of a different cranial nerve. These chapters open with detailed discussion of the various functions of each nerve and normal anatomy. The authors then describe common lesions and present a series of cases that are complemented by CT images and MRIs to illustrate disease entities that result in cranial nerve dysfunction.

    This book offers concise descriptions of cross-sectional imaging studies of the abdomen and pelvis, supplemented with over 1100 high-quality images and discussion of state-of-the-art techniques. It is based on the most common clinical cases encountered in daily practice and uses an algorithmic approach to help radiologists arrive first at a working differential diagnosis and then reach an accurate diagnosis based on imaging features, which incorporate clinical, laboratory, and other underlying contexts. The book is organized by anatomical organ of origin and each chapter provides a brief anatomical background of the organ under review; explores various cross-sectional imaging techniques and common pathologies; and presents practical algorithms based on frequently encountered imaging features. Special emphasis is placed on the role of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In addition to algorithmic coverage of many pathological entities in various abdominopelvic organs, unique topics are also examined, such as imaging of organ transplant (including kidney, liver and pancreas), evaluation of perianal fistula, and assessment of rectal carcinoma and prostate carcinoma by MRI. Cross-Sectional Imaging of the Abdomen and Pelvis: A Practical Algorithmic Approach is a unique and practical resource for radiologists, fellows, and residents.

    Interventional radiology is an indispensable and still expanding area of modern medicine that encompasses numerous diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Cross-sectional imaging modalities such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) have emerged as important techniques for non-vascular interventions, including percutaneous biopsy, drainage, ablation, and neurolysis. Various organs, diseases, and lesions can be approached in this way, permitting the treatment and management of tumors, fluid collections, and pain, the embolization of endoleaks, the provision of access to hollow organs, etc. Accordingly, interventional radiology is now an integral component of the interdisciplinary management of numerous disorders. The revised and significantly extended second edition of this volume covers a broad range of non-vascular interventions guided by CT or MR imaging. Indications, materials, techniques, and results are all carefully discussed. A particularly comprehensive section is devoted to interventional oncology as the most rapidly growing branch of interventional radiology. In addition, detailed information is provided that will assist in establishing and developing an interventional service. This richly illustrated book will be a most valuable source of information and guidance for all radiologists who deal with non-vascular procedures.

    This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the continuously evolving field of dual-energy CT (DECT). An introductory section presents information on the physical and technical background of DECT and considers nonspecific and specific software advantages. Clinical applications of DECT in the evaluation of retroperitoneal viscera are then addressed in detail with the help of high-quality illustrations. Particular attention is devoted to the most recent DECT study protocols, software, and applications in aortic, renal, pancreatic, and adrenal disease. A number of case studies are reported that elucidate the advantages of DECT, and the relevant literature is extensively discussed. The book closes by considering radiation dose and dose-saving measures. The simple and practical approach offered by this book will assist radiologists in the optimal routine use and interpretation of DECT in different retroperitoneal sites and radiology technologists in the choice of settings and parameters.
