Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) is a clinical imaging strategy that mixes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with mechanical vibrations to generate maps of viscoelastic homes of organic tissue. It serves as a non-invasive instrument to realize and quantify mechanical adjustments in tissue constitution, which are signs or explanations of varied illnesses. scientific and examine functions of MRE contain staging of liver fibrosis, evaluation of tumor stiffness and research of neurodegenerative diseases.
the 1st a part of this ebook is devoted to the actual and technological rules underlying MRE, with an creation to MRI physics, viscoelasticity concept and classical waves, in addition to vibration iteration, photograph acquisition and viscoelastic parameter reconstruction.
the second one a part of the ebook specializes in scientific functions of MRE to varied organs. each one part starts off with a dialogue of the explicit homes of the organ, via an in depth evaluation of medical and preclinical stories which were played, tabulating reference values from released literature. The e-book is done via a bankruptcy discussing technical elements of elastography equipment in response to ultrasound.
