Abstract
The Larmor frequency of water protons has reliably linear temperature dependence. Since this frequency shift is easily measurable using relatively simple MRI techniques, a remarkable opportunity arises for uniquely non-invasive and accurate temperature evaluation, deep within any water-containing object. Major applications are appearing in the field of image-guided surgery. The cutting-edge papers collected in this Special Issue demonstrate both the versatility and the power of MRI thermometry.
