SWI Imaging Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Susceptibility Weighted Imaging
in MRI

Basic Concepts and Clinical Applications
edited by E. Mark Haacke

MRI Susceptibility Weighted Imaging in MRI discusses the promising new MRI technique called Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWI), a powerful tool for the diagnosis and treatment of acute stroke, allowing earlier detection of acute stroke hemorrhage and easier detection of microbleeds in acute ischemia.

Presenting an even balance between technical/scientific aspects of the modality and clinical application, this book includes over 100 super high-quality radiographic images and 100 additional graphics and tables.
