From the reviews of the second edition:

"In an expanded second edition of their clinically important book Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging of the Brain, Drs. Moritani, Ekholm, and Westesson, along with other contributors, have presented the radiologist with a highly readable and well-illustrated book. ... for anyone reading through this book, the applicability of DWI and its derivatives to a wide range of abnormalities becomes apparent. ... this book can be confidently recommended to all neuroradiologists, either as part of their personal library or as part of a departmental library." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, September, 2009)
