Magnetic Resonance Imagingby David D. Stark, William G. Bradley Jr.
All chapters have been exhaustively revised and logically organized by body region. A new, contemporary two-color design
For the most comprehensive reference on MRI, radiologists turn to MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING. Continuing the overwhelming success of the first two editions, it provides up-to-date, authoritative coverage with 2,800 pages and 7,320 images.
All chapters have been exhaustively revised and logically organized by body region. A new, contemporary two-color design features key points summary boxes in each chapter and more correlative pathology throughout.
The third edition contains 89 chapters in three volumes: Volume I, Physics, Body Applications; Volume II, Musculoskeletal Applications; and Volume III, Brain, Head and Neck, Spine Applications, and Appendices.
Hot topics include: EPI diffusion and perfusion, FMRI, MRCP, FLAIR, spectroscopy, interventional MRI, breast MRI, first pass GR-enhanced MRA, magnetization transfer, CSF velocity imaging, brain motion studies, and magnetic source imaging.

Description: This is a three-volume text covering the entire spectrum of MR imaging. Sections include physics, body, musculoskeletal, brain, head and neck, and spine. This is the third edition; the second edition was published in 1991.
Purpose: The purpose is twofold: to present a detailed description of current MR techniques that are clinically relevant and to present techniques that are still developing and yet unproved.
Audience: The target audience includes not only radiologists, but also physicists and basic scientists who may use this book as a guide to clinical issues. In my judgment, the text reaches both audiences. The editors are considered the experts in the field and have selected 167 contributors made up predominantly of authorities in their respective fields.
Features: Volume I covers MR physics and MR of breast, chest, abdomen, and pelvis. Volume II covers the entire spectrum of the musculoskeletal system including the peripheral vasculature. Volume III covers brain, head and neck, and spine. The most important feature of the book is significant updating. Included is MR angiography of all areas: MR spectroscopy and all advanced imaging techniques such as FLAIR sequences, fast-spin echo techniques, diffusion/perfusion, and MR cholangiopancreatography. There are also chapters on functional MR, magnetic source imaging, and interventional MR. The only shortcoming is the comparatively small print size, which makes it a bit more difficult to read.
Assessment: This text is THE reference on MR imaging. Other books may provide more detail on specific areas of the body, but no other single textbook covers so much detail over so wide a spectrum. The significant additions more than justify replacement of the previous edition.
