Since the first edition was published in 1993, MRI inPractice has become the standard text for radiographers,technologists, radiology residents, radiologists and even salesrepresentatives on the subject of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).This text is essential reading on undergraduate and postgraduateMRI courses. Furthermore MRI in Practice has come to beknown as the number one reference book and study guide in the areasof MR instrumentation, principles, pulse sequences, imageacquisition, and imaging parameters for the advanced levelexamination for MRI offered by the American Registry for RadiologicTechnologists (ARRT) in the USA. The book explains in clear terms the theory that underpinsmagnetic resonance so that the capabilities and operation of MRIsystems can be fully appreciated and maximised. This fourth editioncaptures recent advances, and coverage includes: parallel imagingtechniques and new sequences such as balanced gradient echo. Building on the success of the first three editions, the fourthedition has been fully revised and updated. The book now comes witha companion website at ahref="" hosts animated versions of a selection of illustrations inthe book that are used on the MRI in Practice Course.These animations and accompanying text are aimed at helping thereader’s comprehension of some of the more difficultconcepts. The website also hosts over 200 interactiveself-assessment exercises to help the reader test theirunderstanding. MRI in Practice features: Full color illustrations Logical presentation of the theory and applications of MRI A new page design A companion website at ahref="" interactive multiple choice questions, short answerquestions PLUS animations of more complex concepts from thebook For more information on the MRI in Practice Course andother learning resources by Westbrook and Talbot, please visit ahref=""

Cardiovascular MRI in Practice

Author: John Grizzard
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781848000902
Release Date: 2008-11-03
Genre: Medical

Cardiovascular MR imaging has become a robust, clinically useful mod- ity, and the rapid pace of innovation and important information it conveys have attracted many students whose goal is to become adept practitioners. In turn, many excellent textbooks have been written to aid this process. These books are necessary and useful in helping the student learn the underlying pulse sequences used in CMR, as well as the imaging findings in a variety of disorders. However, one of the difficulties inherent in learning CMR from a book is that the printed format is not the ideal medium to d- play the dynamic imaging that comprises a typical CMR case. For instance, it may be difficult to perceive focal areas of wall motion abnormality on serial static pictures, but these abnormalities are often easily seen on cine loops. One might say that trying to learn CMR solely from a standard textbook with illustrations is like trying to learn to drive by looking at snapshots obtained through the windshield of a moving car. The learner needs to see the cardiac motion and decide if it is normal or abnormal; he or she needs to be in the driver’s seat. An additional limitation of the ava- able textbooks on CMR is that while they often have superb illustrations of abnormal findings, these images have been preselected.

Wie funktioniert MRI

Release Date: 2013-03-09
Genre: Medical

Wie funktioniert eigentlich MRI? Diese Frage wird so oft gestellt, daß wir uns entschlossen haben, unser Modell von der Funktionsweise dieser faszinierenden und zukunftsweisenden Methode zusammen zufassen. Modell, notabene, denn in Tat und Wahrheit sind die physikali schen und technischen Hintergründe viel komplizierter, als wir sie hier darstellen. Aber dieses Skript richtet sich auch nicht an Physiker innen und Physiker, sondern an all diejenigen, die sich für MRI inter essieren, regelmäßig damit zu tun haben oder einfach sonst genauer wissen möchten, was hinter MRI steckt, also z. B. an Ärztinnen und Ärzte, MTRAs, Studentinnen und Studenten. Das Ziel ist deshalb nicht eine fundierte und exakte Abhandlung aller physikalischen Zusam menhänge und Formeln, sondern eine (hoffentlich) verständliche Einführung in die Prinzipien der MR-Bildgebung. Insbesondere werden (hoffentlich!) alle wichtigen Begriffe behan delt, die auch in der klinischen Anwendung von Bedeutung sind, und es wird versucht, die zugrundeliegenden physikalischen Vorgänge verständlich zu machen. Es geht also trotz allem nicht ohne ein bi߭ chen Physik! Wir danken allen, die uns bei der Verbesserung dieses Skripts mit Rat und Kritik geholfen haben. Besonderer Dank gebührt an dieser Stelle Herrn Constantin von Weymarn, der bei der Überarbeitung des Skripts geholfen und die physikalischen Grundlagen abgesichert hat. Außerdem danken wir Herrn Johannes Fröhlich von der Firma Guerbet AG für seine zahlreichen konstruktiven Anregungen. Wir sind auch in Zukunft froh um jede Kritik, die es uns ermöglicht, diese Ein führung zu verbessern, damit sie ihr Ziel erreichen kann.

High Field Brain MRI

Author: Ugo Salvolini
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

Release Date: 2006-06-23
Genre: Medical

This book describes the development of systems of magnetic resonance imaging using the higher magnetic field strength of 3 tesla, in comparison to the current gold standard of 1.5 tesla. These new systems of MRI make it possible to perform with high spatial, temporal and contrast resolution not only morphological examinations but also functional studies on spectroscopy, diffusion, perfusion, and cortical activation, thus helping research and providing an important tool for routine diagnostic activity. At the same time the new systems offer unparalleled sensitivity and specificity in the numerous conditions of neuroradiological interest.
