New Technologies in Imaging

Clark Chris

I will review the latest developments in imaging of the brain using magnetic resonance. Over the last twenty years imaging of the diffusion of water molecules in the tissue has emerged as the method of choice for measuring the structure of brain tissue. The development of so called diffusion tensor imaging had allowed measurement of anisotropy which reflects how aligned or coherent is the underlying structure of myelinated axons in white matter. For example we have shown in ch...
