Neurology professor publishes most comprehensive reference on neuro MRI
Editors In-Young Choi, Ph.D., and Peter Jezzard, Ph.D., create the must-have volume with top experts in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
In-Young Choi, Ph.D., professor of neurology at the University of Kansas Medical Center, published, “Advanced Neuro MR Techniques and Applications,” one of the most comprehensive references and textbooks on neuro MR technology.
Choi, and her co-editor, Peter Jezzard, Ph.D., a professor at the University of Oxford and director of the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging in the United Kingdom, recruited the field’s top experts to extensively cover neuro magnetic resonance (MR) techniques. Designed as a must-have reference for MR scientists and engineers as well as clinicians, neuroscientists, and psychologists who use MR techniques in their research, it offers detailed knowledge of emerging techniques and their specific clinical and neuroscience applications.
The book also provides insight into the best available data acquisition, processing, reconstruction, and analysis strategies and methods that can be used in clinical and neuroscience research, and is therefore ideal for postdoctoral fellows, doctoral students, residents, and other trainees interested in the topics. It is the fourth volume of an Elsevier MR technology reference book series.
An international expert in brain metabolism and neurochemistry as well as magnetic resonance technology, Choi is also the editor of one of the most referenced handbooks in neurochemistry, “Neural Metabolism in Vivo.” It features 99 world-renowned experts covering neurochemistry and brain metabolism-related neural metabolism and brain function using all the major neuroscience tools and methods. The book is part of the Springer Science series, “Advances in Neurobiology.”
In addition, Choi is co-chair of the program and organizing committees for the International Conference on Brain Energy Metabolism, the major international conference on brain metabolism, set for Oct. 24-27 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Choi, who has been at KU since 2005, directs the metabolic imaging units for both clinical and pre-clinical studies, and the magnetic resonance science program at the Hoglund Biomedical Imaging Center at KU Medical Center. She also is affiliated with the bioengineering program at the University of Kansas.
