Overview

This landmark reference provides the most complete coverage of magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen and pelvis, with particular emphasis on illustrating benign, malignant and inflammatory lesions. The first chapter provides an introduction to relevant imaging physics, summary of contrast media for body imaging, and imaging protocols. Organized by anatomic region, the text presents brief descriptions of pathophysiology followed by detailed discussion of characteristics of entities in the relevant organ or system.

  • Highlights the importance of MRI and MR angiography in abdominopelvic imaging.
  • Includes over 2000 figures.
  • Emphasizes the importance of reproducibility and high image quality.
  • Presents morphological characteristics and pathologic criteria for disease diagnosis.
  • Reflects a pattern recognition approach to MRI.

Praise for the previous edition:

"This is an excellent text that includes a broad range of pathologic disorders related to the abdomen and pelvis and their imaging characteristics on MRI."
Abdominal Imaging

"The coverage is truly comprehensive and there are numerous illustrations providing not just ‘classic’ appearances of lesions but variants as well."
