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.
