Overview

Ensure high-quality diagnostic images with this practical scanning reference! Designed to help you plan and acquire MRI images, Handbook of MRI Scanning, by Geraldine Burghart and Carol Ann Finn, includes the step-by-step scanning protocols you need to produce optimal images. Coverage of all body regions prepares you to perform virtually any scan. Going beyond the referencing and recognition of three-plane, cross-sectional anatomy, each chapter demonstrates appropriate slice placements, typical midline images of each plane, and detailed line drawings of the pertinent anatomy corresponding to the midline images. With this handbook, you can conceptualize an entire scan and its intended outcome prior to performing the scan on a patient. Keep the book at your console -- it’s ideal for quick reference!

  • Consistent, clinically based layout of the sections makes scanning information easy to use with three images per page to demonstrate clinical sequences in MRI examinations.
  • Handy, pocket size offers easy, immediate access right at the console.
  • 600 images provide multiple views and superb anatomic detail.
  • Suggested technical parameters are provided in convenient tables for quick reference with space to write in site-specific protocols or equipment variations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Karl Freund, RT (R) MR(Froedtert Hospital)
Description: This comprehensive manual on MRI details protocols, image acquisition, and related anatomy.
Purpose: This book provides technologists and students with not only a baseline for MR image acquisition, but also a standard of quality that should be consistently duplicated to provide the healthcare team with quality diagnostic images. The book carries out the authors' clearly defined objectives.
Audience: This is a must read for any student or beginning technologist. It does a great job of providing a practical, realistic approach to MRI that avoids confusing physics and equations. Experienced technologists will appreciate the suggested scan protocols, with technical parameters for both 1.5 and the more advanced 3T magnets.
Features: The manual details over 50 MRI protocols, the pulse sequences of each, and the suggested parameters for quality baseline imaging. Also valuable are anatomy diagrams for each protocol with appropriate labeling and a table of technical parameters for all scan protocols for both 1.5 and 3T magnets. In addition, blank tables are provided for readers to modify their site protocols to accommodate the capabilities of their specific equipment. The best feature of this manual is its simplicity. The only shortcoming for me is the duplication of information from one section to another, but this certainly does not detract from the book's quality and usefulness.
Assessment: This manual would be invaluable for students or beginning technologists and a great reference for seasoned technologists. I have never seen another book that packed as much useful and simplistic information into such a small package.

    I think the book itself sounds fantastic however I think it is a shame that the free sample doesn't even allow me to look at any of the images.  Most of the sample is the table of contents and acknowledgements.  Barnes and Noble may want to work on that.
