This book provides a comprehensive review of modern nuclear magnetic resonance approaches to biomedical problems in vivo using state-of-the-art techniques. It devotes equal attention to the methods and applications of NMR and addresses the potential of each of the techniques discussed. The volume includes late-breaking areas such as functional imaging, flow imaging, bioreactor spectroscopy, and chemical shift imaging. All chapters are written in a "current concepts" style that renders information accessible to readers at all levels. Contributors are known experts in the field, lending the book an international perspective.


AUDIENCE: Includes physiologists, academic physicians (i.e. radiologists, cardiologists, and neurologists) and magnetic resonance specialists. Also a reference for graduate students and researchers in other, related fields.
