Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Provides residents and practicing radiologists, as well as interested clinicians, with the fundamental information necessary to understand the basic concepts and major clinical applications of MRI. The second edition first, 1987 has grown considerably, consisting of 55 compared to the initial 27 chapters. The length of the book has more than doubled. This enlargement of the volume reflects the expansion of knowledge and applications of MRI in the body. The current edition consists of five sections: anatomic atlas; principles of MRI; clinical applications in the neck, chest, and cardiovascular system; clinical applications in the abdomen and pelvis; clinical applications in the musculoskeletal system; and MR contrast media.
