Since the most useful information that MRI provides is anatomical, understanding of anatomy is essential in the interpretation of MR images. For clinicians, it is not absolutely compulsory to possess detailed knowledge of the workings of MRI, or even of its basic principles. Since MRI is able to produce multiplanar tomograms, a three-dimensional understanding of anatomy is necessary. For this reason, MR images of the head in horizontal, sagittal, and coronal planes are presented together with corresponding schematic diagrams in this book, and sagittal sections and their schemata are shown for spinal MRI.
