Few institutions use MRI perfusion without contrast injection called arterial spins labeling (ASL) routinely in clinical setting. After general considerations concerning the different ASL techniques and quantitative issues, we will detail a pulsed sequence that can be used on a clinical 1.5-T MR unit. We will discuss and illustrate the use of ASL in tumoral(More)
Evaluating precisely the temporal variations of tumor volumes is very important for at least three types of practical applications: pharmaceutical trials, decision making for drug treatment or surgery and patients follow-up. In this paper, we present a volumetric analysis technique, combining precise rigid registration of 3D medical images, non-rigid(More)
Contrast-enhanced (CE) MRI provides in vivo physiological information that cannot be obtained by conventional imaging methods. This information is generally extracted by using models to represent the circulation of contrast agent in the body. However, the results depend on the quality of the fit obtained with the chosen model. Therefore, one must check the(More)
Pathology and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies have provided evidence of widespread axonal loss and reductions of cerebral and spinal cord volume in multiple sclerosis (MS). Atrophy measures on MRI may be a useful surrogate marker of worsening disability in MS, but the published studies are of relatively short duration. Change in brain volume(More)
