About this book

Introduction

MRI in Clinical Practice provides an easily accessible source of reference material to supplement existing texts, distilling a wide breadth of theoretical and practical information into a pocket-sized manual.

The book covers the basic Physics behind MRI, quality assurance, up-to-date safety guidelines and a useful gallery of image artefacts. Part of the book focuses on the specific areas of the body in which MRI is currently exploited, describing how MRI is performed in practice. In each of these sections, a common theme is followed with illustrations of MR images acquired with clinically relevant settings and typical imaging protocols are also explicitly stated. Additional information is provided which includes a subjective view of the strengths and weaknesses of MRI in comparison to other imaging modalities. As well as covering routine clinical techniques, the latest advanced methods (e.g. spectroscopy, fMRI, diffusion, high field MRI) are discussed and placed into the context of clinical application.

While primarily useful to the MRI practitioner or trainee, MRI in Clinical Practice will be useful for a larger audience including post-graduate students, physicists, radiologists and technologists.
