About the book

The topic of the book is Magnetic resonance spectroscopy. It is a very important field in the imaging era because it brings a comprehensive insight into the radiology field. It differs from conventional cross-sectional imaging, namely computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, in terms of providing not anatomic-pathological information, instead of detailed metabolic information. Therefore, we can obtain detailed metabolic information about any tissue, we want to examine. By combining this information with the others that we get from cross-sectional imaging, reaching out to a correct diagnosis becomes much easier. In this method, we examine tissues by calculating some important metabolite levels within them and obtain both graphical information and mathematical data in this way. This method provides us to discriminate between low-grade and high-grade malignant tumors and also rules out radiation necrosis from viable tumor tissue. Also, some mitochondrial metabolic diseases give some characteristic data, like Canavan disease. With this project, we will aim to provide substantial information about this invaluable method.
