Remarkable advances in medical diagnostic imaging have been made during the past few decades. The development of new imaging techniques and continuous improvements in the display of digital images have opened new horizons in the study of brain anatomy and pathology. The field of brain imaging has now become a fastmoving, demanding, and exciting multidisciplinary activity. I hope that this textbook will be useful to students and clinicians in the field of neuroscience, in understanding
the fundamentals of advances in brain imaging.
We couldn't have produced the book in less than a year without the excellent team of authors. I am deeply indebted to all the authors. Their contribution and sacrifice made this a worthwhile and proud endeavour.
Special thanks to Ms. Romana Vukelic, publishing process manager for this project, for her tireless and unwavering support of the project.
We are greatly indebted to the production staff of InTech for their patience, valuable guidance and extreme professionalism.
I would also like to thank my family, friends and colleagues for their understanding and encouragement throughout the project.
