PET and MRI are rapidly emerging technologies that provide three-dimensional images, which reflect biological and physiological processes in vivo. Quantitation in Biomedical Imaging with PET and MRI overviews recent advances in PET/MRI devices and in image processing algorithms and their applications in clinical studies. Potentials for absolute quantitation of physiologic parameters with MRI and the use of hyperpolarized xenon as a new contrast agent in MRI have also been addressed. The role and importance of the methodological advances have been further discussed to understand the vascular controlling mechanism during neuronal activation, and the patho-physiology in brain diseases.
This book has been published to share the ideas of valuable discussions introduced in the workshop. Divided into three chapters, which include PET basics, MRI basics and the application of PET and MRI techniques, Quantitation in Biomedical Imaging with PET and MRI will be a useful tool to those interested in the basics of quantitative molecular imaging, both with PET and MRI.
About: Quantitation in Biomedical Imaging with PET and MRI is a selection of invited papers presented at the International Workshop on Quantitation in Biomedical Imaging with PET and MRI, held in Osaka, Japan.
