Several of our esteemed faculty are considered experts in the field of magnetic resonance imaging. In particular, the following books have made a significant impact on the scientific community:
The MRI Atlas of Human White Matter was published in 2005.
The MRI Atlas of Human White Matter
- Authors: S. Mori, S. Wakana, L.M. Nagae-Poetscher, P.C.M. van Zijl
- Publish Date: 2005
- Description (From Amazon.Com Editorial Review / Concepts in Magnetic Resonance):
"This is one of the first books to provide highly detailed illustrations of human white matter created on the basis of high-resolution diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and 3D tract reconstruction. The atlas takes the reader on a journey through the 3D anatomy of the major white matter fiber bundles of the brain. The authors give a concise and helpful introduction to the four main categories of white matter tracts. The central part of the atlas is comprised of detailed, good-quality, high resolution consecutive DTI color maps in each orthogonal plane, accompanied by color-shaded parcellation maps highlighting the major white matter tracts. Summing up: Scrolling through the atlas was truly pleasurable."

Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging was published in 2007.
Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging
- Authors: Susumu Mori
- Publish Date: 2007
- Description (From the Amazon.Com Editorial Review):
The concept of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) is often difficult to grasp, even for Magnetic Resonance physicists. Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging uses extensive illustrations (not equations) to help readers to understand how DTI works. Emphasis is placed on the interpretation of DTI images, the design of DTI experiments, and the forms of application studies. The theory of DTI is constantly evolving and so there is a need for a textbook that explains how the technique works in a way that is easy to understand - Introduction to Diffusion Tensor Imaging fills this gap.
- Uses extensive illustrations to explain the concept of Diffusion Tensor Imaging
- Easy to understand, even without a background in physics
- Includes sections on image interpretation, experimental design and applications
