This book is a complete introduction to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and is addressed to a wide audience. It is composed of two complementary parts, dealing with the physics and the clinical aspects of MRI.The theoretical background of MRI is presented in a clear, direct and succinct manner. Material not vital to routine clinical work is omitted or skimmed over.The second part is a novel approach to clinical MRI that stimulates the reader's thinking. The emphasis is on the mental steps that lead clinicians to a complete and meaningful diagnosis.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This introductory book is designed to take readers from the fundamentals of proton interactions to the interpretation of clinical MR imaging studies. . All healthcare professionals are the intended audience. The book is certainly suitable for radiologists interested in MRI or MR technologists wanting to learn the essentials of the technique. . provides a good starting point for those involved in MR imaging with a clinical perspective. It is well-illustrated and practically demonstrates how physical principles directly govern the images of any MR imaging study." (R. Terry Thompson, Doody's Review Service, March, 2009)
