All the clinical applications of whole-body MRI--together in one essential reference!
"This book, to my knowledge, is the first of its kind and offers a hands-on approach to the evolving field of whole-body MRI, which gives the reader tools to effectively utilize and optimize applicatino of whole-body MRI technology in the patient care setting."--F. Scott Pereles, MD, Salinas Valley Radiologists
Superbly illustrated, and written by leading experts who helped establish MRI as a diagnostic tool, this clinically relevant resource puts whole-body MRI into perspective like no other text. The first section covers the technical requirements of whole-body MRI, along with its principles and associated data processing. Subsequent sections offer a practical look at all aspects of whole-body MRI from a clinical perspective--including its use in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease and in metastasis screening.
