Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides non-invasive information about the brain's blood flow, water movement and biochemical abnormalities following stroke. Advances in 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 book, the scientific basis and clinical applications of MRI in stroke are reviewed.
