Changes in water content are highly relevant for the
characterisation of disease, but they are usually in the
low percentage range, requiring methods with high
accuracy for detection. We report here on such a method
and apply it to healthy volunteers and a patient with
subacute stroke. The aim of the study is to establish a
quantitative method for monitoring of the evolution of
oedema in stroke.
