Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0632059869, Hardcover)

The intention of this book is to provide the reader with a fundamental understanding of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Readers should be able to acquire a fundamental knowledge that enables them to pursue studies of their own and to cope with some of the most common problems, such as image contrast and artifacts or questions concerning possible hazards to patients.

The first edition of this book was published in 1984 as the primer for European Magnetic Resonance Forum to teach the basics and some of the applications of MR imaging and MR spectroscopy. Many organizers of other teaching courses and universities all over the world have found it valuable for their students.

The public reaction to and the reviews of the last edition were extremely positive. The book is very popular with radiologists, cardiologists, medical students and radiographers, who all encouraged the author to revise it again. The text and all the figures have been completely revised and new chapters have been added.

MR imaging not only requires knowledge of facts but also background information for decision-making. Therefore in this edition some subjective, critical, and opinion-oriented sections are included, intended to offset the technical nature of the book and provide insights into more practical questions faced by MR users.

A new addition is the MR Image Expert CD-ROM, an interactive learning and teaching tool for MR. It simulates the most important aspects of MR imaging on a personal computer. Dynalize is the second application included. It allows the presentation and analysis of dynamic MR imaging studies.
