In 1997, the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) initiated a project intended to lead up to the replacement of its 1990 Recommendations (Publication 60) with a view to producing new, consolidated Recommendations 10-15 years after those of 1990. In order to stimulate comprehensive discussion, an open and iterative consultation process was used. An initial set of conceptual proposals to be considered by the Commission, and two later progress reports describing how and why ideas evolved in interaction with the radiological protection community, were published in the Journal of Radiological Protection (JRP). These three papers are reproduced here with kind permission by the Institute of Physics Publishing. As a result of consultation on the initial conceptual proposals and subsequent debate, the Commission has now drafted a proposed text for its 2005 Recommendations. This is intended not as a radical revision, but as a more coherent statement of current policy and a simplification in its application. The summary of that draft is also reproduced here, while the full text, which is subject to public consultation until 31 December 2004, can be downloaded from the Commission's web site, www.icrp.org.

Over the last decade, some of the greatest achievements in the field of neuroimaging have been related to remarkable advances in magnetic resonance techniques, including diffusion, perfusion, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and functional MRI. Such techniques have provided valuable insights into tissue microstructure, microvasculature, metabolism and brain connectivity. Previously available mostly in research environments, these techniques are now becoming part of everyday clinical practice in a plethora of clinical MR systems. Nevertheless, despite growing interest and wider acceptance, there remains a lack of a comprehensive body of knowledge on the subject, exploring the intrinsic complexity and physical difficulty of the techniques. This book focuses on the basic principles and theories of diffusion, perfusion, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and functional MRI. It also explores their clinical applications and places emphasis on the associated artifacts and pitfalls with a comprehensive and didactic approach. This book aims to bridge the gap between research applications and clinical practice. It will serve as an educational manual for neuroimaging researchers and radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and physicists with an interest in advanced MR techniques. It will also be a useful reference text for experienced clinical scientists who wish to optimize their multi-parametric imaging approach.
