Magnetic resonance evaluation of the pediatric central nervous system is rapidly improving in a number of ways: (1) anatomically with higher resolution; (2) with greater sensitivity to pathological processes characterized by increased water content utilizing fluid attenuated inversion recovery imaging (FLAIR); (3) with greater speed of acquisition with ultrafast (1 s/image) and echo planar imaging techniques (50 ms/image); (4) with measurement of cerebral blood flow as perfusion; (5) with measurement of water proton dispersion (e.g. diffusion imaging); (6) with measurement of biochemical components within tissues with proton spectroscopy; and (7) with evaluation of cortical activation with functional magnetic resonance imaging.
