Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a ‘go-to’ reference for methods and applications of quantitative magnetic resonance imaging, with specific sections on Relaxometry, Perfusion, and Diffusion.Each section will start with an explanation of the basic techniques for mapping the tissue property in question, including a description of the challenges that arise when using these basic approaches. For properties which can be measured in multiple ways, each of these basic methods will be described in separate chapters. Following the basics, a chapter in each section presents more advanced and recently proposed techniques for quantitative tissue property mapping, with a concluding chapter on clinical applications.

The reader will learn:

The basic physics behind tissue property mapping

How to implement basic pulse sequences for the quantitative measurement of tissue properties

The strengths and limitations to the basic and more rapid methods for mapping the magnetic relaxation properties T1, T2, and T2*

The pros and cons for different approaches to mapping perfusion

The methods of Diffusion-weighted imaging and how this approach can be used to generate diffusion tensor

maps and more complex representations of diffusion

How flow, magneto-electric tissue property, fat fraction, exchange, elastography, and temperature mapping are performed

How fast imaging approaches including parallel imaging, compressed sensing, and Magnetic Resonance

Fingerprinting can be used to accelerate or improve tissue property mapping schemes

How tissue property mapping is used clinically in different organs
