Summary Quantitative MRI of the Spinal Cord is the first book focused on quantitative MRI techniques with specific application to the human spinal cord. Most existing books on spinal cord MRI are intended for radiologists and focus on qualitative rather than quantitative techniques used in clinical routine, such as T1/T2/PD-weighted MRI. This work instead includes coverage of diffusion-weighted imaging, magnetization transfer imaging, relaxometry, functional MRI, and spectroscopy. Although these methods have been successfully used in the brain for the past 20 years, their application in the
