MRI Handbook presents a concise review of the physical principles underlying magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), explaining MR physics, patient positioning, and protocols in an easy-to-read format. The first five chapters of the book introduce the reader to the basics of MR imaging, including the relaxation concept, MR pulse sequences, and MR imaging parameters and options. The second part of the book (chapters 6-11) uses extensive illustrations, images, and protocol tables to explain tips and tricks to achieve optimal MR image quality while ensuring patient safety. Individual chapters are devoted to each major anatomic region, including the central nervous, musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular systems. By using annotated MR images and examples of patient positions used during scanning correlated with sample protocols and parameters, MRI Handbook is a practical resource for imaging professionals to use in the course of their daily practice as well as for students to learn the basic concepts of MR imaging.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is among the most important medical imaging techniques available today. There is an installed base of approximately 15,000 MRI scanners worldwide. Each of these scanners is capable of running many different "pulse sequences", which are governed by physics and engineering principles, and implemented by software programs that control the MRI hardware. To utilize an MRI scanner to the fullest extent, a conceptual understanding of its pulse sequences is crucial. Handbook of MRI Pulse Sequences offers a complete guide that can help the scientists, engineers, clinicians, and technologists in the field of MRI understand and better employ their scanner. Explains pulse sequences, their components, and the associated image reconstruction methods commonly used in MRI Provides self-contained sections for individual techniques Can be used as a quick reference guide or as a resource for deeper study Includes both non-mathematical and mathematical descriptions Contains numerous figures, tables, references, and worked example problems

The progress of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a clinical toolhas been extraordinary, out-stripping the rate of development ofany other imaging technique. There has been a huge increase in thepractical applications of MRI techniques and its uses look likelyto extend even further with the development of high speed gradientsand pulse sequences. The Handbook of MRI Technique has proved highly successful inguiding the uninitiated through scanning techniques and helpingmore experienced technologists to improve image quality. The thirdedition of this highly successful book has been fully revised andupdated to consider new technologies and developments essential togood practice. The book is split into two parts. Part 1 considers the mainaspects of theory that relate to scanning and also includespractical tips on gating, equipment use, patient care and safety,and information on contrast media. Part 2 provides step by stepinstruction for examining each anatomical area, beginning with abasic anatomy section, followed by sections on indications, patientpositioning, equipment, artefacts and tips on optimizing imagequality. A section of problem-solving exercises completes thebook. Now in full color throughout with over 200 illustrations thisbook will continue to appeal to radiographers new to MRI andregular users who are looking for information on alternativetechniques and suggestions on protocol modifications. Completely revised and updated Over 100 brand new photographs and line drawings Written by technologists for technologists With contributions from MRI technologists in the USA andAustralia Suitable for users of all types of MRI systems

With this handbook, you can conceptualize an entire scan and its intended outcome prior to performing the scan on a patient. Keep the book at your console -- it’s ideal for quick reference! Consistent, clinically based layout of the sections makes scanning information easy to use with three images per page to demonstrate clinical sequences in MRI examinations. Handy, pocket size offers easy, immediate access right at the console. 600 images provide multiple views and superb anatomic detail. Suggested technical parameters are provided in convenient tables for quick reference with space to write in site-specific protocols or equipment variations.
The progress of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a tool in diagnostic radiology has been extraordinary--outstripping the rate of development of any other imaging technique. Its inherent safety combined with multi-planar capabilities and image-contrast manipulation have ensured its importance in the diagnosis of disease. Handbook of MRI Technique has proved hugely successful in guiding the uninitiated through scanning techniques and helping more experienced technologists to improve image quality. This new edition continues to build on the strengths of the first edition and considers new technologies and developments essential to good practice. Despite their different systems and environments, technologists and radiographers from the US and Australia have contributed large sections to the book to ensure that information on techniques and image optimization is comprehensive. The book is split into two parts. Part I considers the main aspects of theory that relate to scanning and also includes practical tips on gating, equipment use, patient care and safety, and information on contrast media. Part II provides step-by-step instruction for examining each anatomical area, beginning with a basic anatomy section, followed by sections on indications, patient positioning, equipment, artefacts and tips on optimizing image quality. A section of problem-solving exercises completes the book. Now in a larger format with over 200 images, this book will continue to appeal to radiographers new to MRI and regular users who are looking for information on alternative techniques and suggestions on protocol modifications.

To date there is no single reference aimed at teaching the art ofapplications guided coil design for use in MRI. This RF Coilsfor MRI handbook is intended to become thisreference. Heretofore, much of the know-how of RF coil design is bottled upin various industry and academic laboratories around the world.Some of this information on coil technologies and applicationstechniques has been disseminated through the literature, while moreof this knowledge has been withheld for competitive or proprietaryadvantage. Of the published works, the record of technologydevelopment is often incomplete and misleading, accuratereferencing and attribution assignment being tantamount toadmission of patent infringement in the commercial arena. Accordingly, the literature on RF coil design is fragmented andconfusing. There are no texts and few courses offered toteach this material. Mastery of the art and science of RF coildesign is perhaps best achieved through the learning that comeswith a long career in the field at multiple places ofemployment…until now. RF Coils for MRI combines the lifetime understandingand expertise of many of the senior designers in the field into asingle, practical training manual. It informs the engineer on partnumbers and sources of component materials, equipment, engineeringservices and consulting to enable anyone with electronics benchexperience to build, test and interface a coil. The handbookteaches the MR system user how to safely and successfully implementthe coil for its intended application. The comprehensive articlesalso include information required by the scientist or physician topredict respective experiment or clinical performance of a coil fora variety of common applications. It is expectedthat RF Coils for MRI becomes an important resource forengineers, technicians, scientists, and physicians wanting tosafely and successfully buy or build and use MR coils in the clinicor laboratory. Similarly, this guidebook provides teachingmaterial for students, fellows and residents wanting to betterunderstand the theory and operation of RF coils. Many of the articles have been written by the pioneers anddevelopers of coils, arrays and probes, so this is all first handinformation! The handbook serves as an expository guide forhands-on radiologists, radiographers, physicians, engineers,medical physicists, technologists, and for anyone with interests inbuilding or selecting and using RF coils to achieve best clinicalor experimental results. About EMR Handbooks / eMagResHandbooks The Encyclopedia of Magnetic Resonance (up to 2012) andeMagRes (from 2013 onward) publish a wide range of onlinearticles on all aspects of magnetic resonance in physics,chemistry, biology and medicine.
