Up to now MRI could not be used clinically for imaging finestructures of bones or muscles. Since the late 1990s however, thescene has changed dramatically. In particular, Graeme Bydder andhis many collaborators have demonstrated the possibility –and importance – of imaging structures in the body that werepreviously regarded as being “MR Invisible”. The imagesobtained with a variety of these newly developed methods exhibitcomplex contrast, resulting in a new quality of images for a widerange of new applications.
This Handbook is designed to enable the radiology community tobegin their assessment of how best to exploit these newcapabilities. It is organised in four major sections – thefirst of which, after an Introduction, deals with the basic scienceunderlying the rest of the contents of the Handbook. The second,larger, section describes the techniques which are used inrecovering the short T2 and T2* data from which the images arereconstructed. The third and fourth sections present a range ofapplications of the methods described earlier. The third sectiondeals with pre-clinical uses and studies, while the final sectiondescribes a range of clinical applications. It is this last sectionthat will surely have the biggest impact on the development in thenext few years as the huge promise of Short T2 and T2*Imaging will be exploited to the benefit of patients.
In many instances, the authors of an article are the onlyresearch group who have published on the topic they describe. Thisdemonstrates that this Handbook presents a range of methods andapplications with a huge potential for future developments.
About EMR Handbooks / eMagResHandbooks
The Encyclopedia of Magnetic Resonance (up to 2012) andeMagRes (from 2013 onward) publish a wide range of onlinearticles on all aspects of magnetic resonance in physics,chemistry, biology and medicine. The existence of this large numberof articles, written by experts in various fields, is enabling thepublication of a series of EMR Handbooks / eMagResHandbooks on specific areas of NMR and MRI. Thechapters of each of these handbooks will comprise a carefullychosen selection of articles from eMagRes. In consultationwith the eMagRes Editorial Board, the EMRHandbooks / eMagRes Handbooks are coherentlyplanned in advance by specially-selected Editors, and new articlesare written (together with updates of some already existingarticles) to give appropriate complete coverage. The handbooks areintended to be of value and interest to research students,postdoctoral fellows and other researchers learning about thescientific area in question and undertaking relevant experiments,whether in academia or industry.
