MRS of the Brain and Neurological Disorders illustrates and demonstrates the usefulness of magnetic resonance spectroscopy for the diagnosis of brain and neurological disorders, including epilepsy, nervous disorders, psychiatric disorders, and brain tumors.

The book is unique in that it contains 87 case studies of neurologic and psychiatric disorders accumulated by clinical application of 31P chemical shift imaging and 1H single voxel spectroscopy, using a single MRS system. The extensive case studies, selected from 1,200 patients, include cases of brain tumors, cerebral infarction, cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM), Moya Moya disease, cerebral hemorrhage, dementia, neurologic disorders, epilepsy, and psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, depression, mania, and alcoholism. Highly illustrated, the book also covers a short history of MRS, explains basic principles of MRS, and summarizes a biochemical study for understanding the 31P and 1H spectra.

While several MRS studies have been conducted by researchers worldwide, no previous book has collected as many case studies. Indeed, with its in-depth examination of the subject matter, MRS of the Brain and Neurological Disorders will play a major role in the progress of in-vivo investigation of neurologic and psychiatric disorders by MRS.
