Special Issue "Whole Body MRI: Major Advances and Future Perspective"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2021).
“Whole-Body MRI: Major Advances and Future Perspective” is a Special Issue of the Section Medical Imaging of Diagnostics that will highlight the state of the art of this MRI technique that has become increasingly important in the last 15 years.
The combination of technical improvements in MRI hardware, technique of image acquisition, reconstruction algorithms and software as well as the introduction of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) and other derived pulse sequences, in addition to conventional MRI pulses, also in for whole-body imaging, have promoted advancements with a direct rebound in the clinical setting.
The focus of this Special Issue will be on techniques and clinical applications of whole-body MRI, including DWI, for lymphoma, myeloma, oncologic staging, and metastases assessment, also in the post-treatment setting.
This Special issue will also emphasize future perspectives of this technique, with a look to emerging applications and methods.
Prof. Dr. Alessandro Stecco
