Overview

MRI at a Glance provides concise, easily accessible information on MRI physics and is an invaluable revision aid. All topics are included from magnetism to safety, K space to pulse sequences, image contrast to artefacts. The second edition has been fully revised and updated with brand new information on data acquisition and pulse sequences. The book is now in full colour throughout and follows the familiar, easy-to-use at a Glance format with each topic presented as a double-page spread with key facts accompanied by clear diagrams encapsulating essential knowledge.
