"Although traditionally a qualitative technique, MRI can be used to gather quantitative information on the structure and function of the human body. While historically applied to neurophysiology, MRI is now routinely being used to explore other organs and structures, especially the heart and skeleton. This volume reviews various MRI techniques for obtaining quantitative and physiological information of the human body. It compares and contrasts several different applications of MR in quantitative research and on various body parts/structures, including data acquisition, processing, and analysis/interpretation. The book also explores new and emerging techniques and modeling"--Provided by publisher.
