Overview

The field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has evolved into an integral component of imaging procedures. And through all of the major advances and protocols that have defined this dynamic technology, only one text stands as the most accessible introduction to MRI systems available–MRI: Basic Principles and Applications.

Proven as a practical guide for radiology technologists and students, this concise, yet comprehensive resource strikes a unique balance between coverage of MRI theory and its implement tion in commercial scanners. The book starts with a presentation of fundamental topics, including the production of net magnetization and concepts of magnetic resonance. It then progresses to a one-of-a-kind overview of pivotal areas such as magnetic resonance physics, imaging techniques, hardware, and applications. Throughout, explanations and illustrations clarify technical concepts. Advanced mathematics is kept to a minimum, helping you become familiar with the foundation of MRI as it is used today.

Now completely updated, the Third Edition of MRI: Basic Principles and Applications brings you up to speed with the latest advances in this fast-moving field.

The new edition features:

  • Added discussions on 3D imaging, real-time imaging, cardiac imaging, and parallel acquisition techniques
  • An overview of important issues related to ultra-high magnetic field scanning systems (which are now commercially available)
  • Thoroughly updated and revised coverage of clinical protocols that reflect current methodologies
  • A two-chapter description of MRI physics, consisting of a review of introductory topics, followed by an examination of advanced concepts
  • Dozens of new images that accompany and add clarity to the text’s technical material
