About this book


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become the leading cross-sectional imaging method in clinical practice. Continuous technical improvements have significantly broadened the scope of applications. At present, MR imaging is not only the most important diagnostic technique in neuroradiology and musculoskeletal radiology, but has also become an invaluable diagnostic tool for abdominal, pelvic, cardiac, breast and vascular imaging. This book offers practical guidelines for performing efficient and cost-effective MRI examinations in daily practice. The underlying idea is that, by adopting a practical protocol-based approach, the work-flow in a MRI unit can be streamlined and optimized. For the second edition, all chapters have been thoroughly reviewed, and new techniques and figures were included. This book will help beginners to advance their starting point in implementing the protocols and will aid more experienced users in updating their knowledge.

Radiology Review:

"This ambitious work covers nearly all aspects of clinical MR imaging, including neurologic, body, muscoloskeletal, breast, vascular, and cardiac appliactions. ... the book provides a good basic overview of many topics and would be a useful starting point for residents and practicing radiologists who are venturing beyond their comfort zone. ... The images and illustrations are of excellent quality and add greatly to the usefulness of the text. The layout and design of the book are attractive. ... Clinical MR Imaging: A Practical Approach is a useful text for anyone interested in a brief overview of clinical MR imaging. ..." (James Glockner, MD, PhD; Radiology Dec 2007)
