MR Spectroscopy of Pediatric Brain Disorders
Blüml, Stefan; Panigrahy, Ashok
Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a user-friendly, widely available imaging modality that can be of particular use for brain conditions, including tumors, metabolic disorders, and systemic diseases. MR Spectroscopy of Pediatric Brain Disorders is a groundbreaking survey of the many applications of MRS in pediatrics, taking into account how dramatically the young brain matures as well as the unique presentation of many brain disorders in this population. The first section of this book carefully explains the basic science and practice of MRS. The following section is filled with case studies designed for the clinician who wants to quickly and easily understand how to use MRS for various pediatric brain conditions and disorders. Ideal for the radiologist, neurologist, neurooncologist, neurosurgeon, and even the neuroscience and neurobiology community, MR Spectroscopy of Pediatric Brain Disorders is a fascinating reference for clinicians and researchers alike.
