Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steve C Censky, BBA, RTR (United Regional Medical Services, Inc.)
Description: This book gives even the inexperienced technologist a simplified explanation of the basic physics involved in producing a MRI image. It's a useful tool for both the experienced and inexperienced technologist. The format is logical and the book is arranged in an intuitive manner.
Purpose: It is intended to give technologists studying for the advanced certification exam a quick, understandable guide to basic MRI physics. The book fills an important niche in that it is one of few that describe the physics of MR in a way that's not only logical, but very understandable, even for a novice. This book meets all objectives set out by the author.
Audience: The audience is MRI technologists who want a quick reference explaining the physics of MRI in a simplified format. It's useful not only for experienced MRI technologists studying for advanced certification, but also for technologists new to the field wishing to better understand the basic physics involved in producing an image. The author is a credible authority and is able to present the information in a very understandable manner.
Features: All the important aspects of MRI physics are addressed in a simplified, logical manner. The table of contents and index is very helpful for locating information quickly. The illustrations are well thought out and useful.
Assessment: This book is extremely useful for anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of MR physics. The book is the best I've seen to date describing the physics of MRI in a manner that even inexperienced technologists should be able to understand.
