The ebook is geared toward these wishing to actually comprehend the place the diffusion sign comes from, and procure a radical grounding within the conception, equipment and purposes of diffusion MRI. the purpose this is to not 'skim the surface' - yet to dig deep into every one subject - in order that an intensive grounding is got. In assembling those issues (many of that have by no means formerly seemed in a textual content publication at the topic), Prof Jones rigorously balances theoretical remedies with useful issues.
