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

Author: Dominik Weishaupt
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783662109373
Release Date: 2013-03-09
Genre: Medical

Wie schon die beiden vorherigen Auflagen, führt dieses Buch kurz und prägnant in die Physik und Funktionsweise der Magnetresonanztomographie ein. Insbesondere werden alle wichtigen Begriffe, die in der Klinik von Bedeutung sind und die zugrundeliegenden physikalischen Vorgänge verständlich gemacht. Entsprechend liegt der Schwerpunkt auf einem klar strukturierten Aufbau. Alle Kapitel wurden überarbeitet und auf den neuesten Stand des Wissens gebracht. Neu sind die Kapitel "Determinanten des Signal-zu-Rausch-Verhältnisses" und "Sicherheit und Risiken". Der zunehmenden Bedeutung des MRI in der nichtinvasiven Gefässdiagnostik wird mit einem speziellen Kapitel Rechnung getragen. Die Kapitel über MR-Sequenzen wurden neu gegliedert, um der Entwicklung zu immer schnelleren Sequenzen gerecht zu werden. Das Buch richtet sich in erster Linie an Ärzte, MTRAs und Studenten, die sich mit den Grundlagen der MR-Bildgebung vertraut machen wollen.

High Field Brain MRI

Author: Tommaso Scarabino
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319441740
Release Date: 2017-02-27
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.
