Overview

"Since the first edition of MRI in Practice was published in 1993, the book has become the standard text for radiographers, technologists, radiology residents, radiologists and even sales representatives on the subject of magnetic resonance imaging. This text is essential reading on postgraduate courses." Building on the success of the first two editions, the authors have now re-conceptualized the design of the book. The third edition contains a wealth of additional illustrations and chapter enhancements draw on the depth of the authors' experience in delivering MRI education and training. To promote accessibility of difficult concepts, extended analogies have been developed to relate the complexities of MRI physics to everyday phenomena. Learning points are clearly articulated, and frequent summaries are included to assist the reader in digesting the information.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Nils Thomas Anderson
This book serves as an educational reference for those interested in magnetic resonance imaging. It contains information on how and why MRI works. The previous edition was published in 1993. The goal of this edition is to provide healthcare practitioners with updated information about how the physics of magnetic resonance are used to acquire diagnostic images. This increased knowledge will help individuals with certification in this field, thus providing better patient care. In my opinion, the goals of the authors have been met. The introductory level of this book makes it a suitable means for a variety of healthcare personnel to increase their knowledge on this sometimes intimidating subject. Anyone associated with the field of radiology could benefit from the information provided by these credible authors. The illustrations serve their purpose, but seem endless. Color may have broken the tedium of so many diagrams. The references are necessary and current. Resources on this topic at this level are limited, increasing the value of this offering. The greatest asset of this text are its completeness and currency. This information is much needed. The way it is formatted here not only makes it available but palatable. This edition is a vast improvement over the previous one and is easily justified. I will make use of it myself and will recommend it to anyone interested in magnetic resonance.

A textbook for a graduate course, written by practicing technicians, and useful as well to professionals in medical specialties other than radiology who want a basic knowledge of magnetic-resonance imaging. Discusses such aspects as image weighting and contrast, flow phenomena, instrumentation, and safety. The second edition includes a chapter on advanced techniques and bolsters the chapter on fundamental concepts; first published in 1993. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From the Publisher
“MRI in Practice can be recommdned for all radiologicprofessionals interested in MR imaging.  This is a strong textfor the MR student and an updated resource for the MR technologistseeking to refresh imaging concepts and be introduced to newimaging updates.”  (Radiologic Technology, 1March 2012)

"Westbrook (health and social care, Anglia Ruskin U., UK) et al.provide a text on magnetic resonance imaging for radiographers,technologists, radiology residents, undergraduate and graduatestudents, and radiologists . . . This edition has been revised andupdated and has rewritten chapters on encoding and image formationand pulse sequences to include sampling, data acquisition, and thelatest sequences." (Book News, 1 August 2011)

    This book was not a good book. The book was poorly written. I had to use Google to be a better understanding on most of the subjects. The book also had several grammar errors. I would not advise a student to use this book.
    I give the book one star
