Magnetic resonance imaging provides non-invasive information about the brain's blood flow, water movement and biochemical abnormalities following stroke, and advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are transforming the investigation and treatment of cerebrovascular disease. Echoplanar techniques with diffusion and perfusion weighted imaging, together with developments in magnetic resonance spectroscopy and angiography, are replacing CT scanning as the diagnostic modality of choice. In this profusely illustrated book world leaders in these technologies review the scientific basis and clinical applications of MRI in stroke. It will appeal to a broad readership including stroke physicians, neurologists, neurosurgeons, rehabilitation specialists, and others with a clinical or research interest in cerebrovascular disease.

• State of the art coverage of techniques that are revolutionising the way stroke is investigated • Editors and contributors are world leaders • Profusely illustrated

'This book provides a good overview of the use of MRI in stroke and is of educational benefit to both clinicians and radiologists involved in the care of patients with stroke and has started to take on some very important issues …' Neuroradiology

'This is an excellent intermediate level textbook that covers the topic of MR imaging in stroke and ischaemic stroke in particular. The book is well written throughout and easy to read. … The authorship reads like a Who's Who of the literature of stroke imaging and the quality of this book reflects it. … I would thoroughly recommend this book to all trainee physicians, neurovascular surgeons and neuroradiologists with an interest in ischaemic stroke …' Acta Neurochirugica
