Pertinent works associated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and drug delivery are reviewed in this work to demonstrate the role of transport theory in porous media in advancing the progress in biomedical applications. Diffusion process is considered significant in many therapies such as delivering drugs to the brain. Progress in development of the diffusion equation using local volume-averaging technique and evaluation of the applications associated with the diffusion equation are analyzed… CONTINUE READING
