Overview

The progress of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a tool in diagnostic radiology has been extraordinary--outstripping the rate of development of any other imaging technique. Its inherent safety combined with multi-planar capabilities and image-contrast manipulation have ensured its importance in the diagnosis of disease.

Handbook of MRI Technique has proved hugely successful in guiding the uninitiated through scanning techniques and helping more experienced technologists to improve image quality. This new edition continues to build on the strengths of the first edition and considers new technologies and developments essential to good practice. Despite their different systems and environments, technologists and radiographers from the US and Australia have contributed large sections to the book to ensure that information on techniques and image optimization is comprehensive.

The book is split into two parts. Part I considers the main aspects of theory that relate to scanning and also includes practical tips on gating, equipment use, patient care and safety, and information on contrast media. Part II provides step-by-step instruction for examining each anatomical area, beginning with a basic anatomy section, followed by sections on indications, patient positioning, equipment, artefacts and tips on optimizing image quality. A section of problem-solving exercises completes the book.

Now in a larger format with over 200 images, this book will continue to appeal to radiographers new to MRI and regular users who are looking for information on alternative techniques and suggestions on protocol modifications.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Essential for many MRI courses in the UK and USA and is a very popular soure of information to radiographers, radiologists and all interested MRI practitioners...This publication should have a mandatory place in the department library of all imaging centres with access to MRI." RAD Magazine
From The Critics
Reviewer: Steve C Censky, BBA, RTR (United Regional Medical Services, Inc.)
Description: This book is very well thought out and logically arranged. The technical information and illustrations are concise and very informative. This is a second edition; the first one was printed in 1994.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a guide and reference to MRI technologists that will be informative and useful on a daily basis, rather than a book that is read and then placed on the shelf for only occasional use. The second edition is more comprehensive and informative, and the author does an excellent job of building on the first edition. The objectives are important and necessary at this time in the rapidly changing environment of MRI. The author did a fine job of meeting the stated objectives.
Audience: This book is written in simple, understandable terms for both MRI technologists and radiologists. Unless he or she is familiar with MRI terminology, the material covered might be difficult for a radiographer who does not have a prior background in the modality to understand. The contributors are credible in the area of MRI and the subject matter presented.
Features: The author covers all aspects of MRI scanning including anatomy, technique, positioning, and theory. This is an extremely useful guide, because of the way the material is organized and presented. The format allows for a quick reference to a specific anatomic area either for scanning assistance or general information. The scanning ranges and anatomic drawings are especially helpful for technologists relatively new to the field.
Assessment: This is an outstanding reference guide to the MRI technologist. Useful, updated information on technique, anatomy, and theory is provided. The book is organized in a logical and very user-friendly format. The illustrations and examples are simple, concise, and effective. Advances in the field more than justify replacing the first edition. This is one of the most well thought out guides to practical MRI scanning I have seen to date.

Westbrook (Training and Education Manager, HealthSouth, UK) and co-authors provide explanations of the most common examinations using magnetic resonance imaging. After a brief review of theoretical and practical concepts such as pulse sequences, flow phenomena and artifacts, gating and respiratory compensation techniques, and patient care and safety, the bulk of the work consists explaining examination procedures for nine examination areas. For each examination area, information is provided on basic anatomy, common indications, equipment, patient positioning, suggested protocol, image optimization, and further reading. Annotation c.
