Product Description


"...I believe it will become the 'gold standard' text for people involved in MR research or applications because of its clear and concise descriptions of most aspects of MRI." --Michael Jacobs, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland in the JOURNAL OF MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (2006) "...an outstanding reference source that covers all the important aspects of pulse sequence design and implementation...it fills an important gap not addressed by the other texts on MRI physics. It should be on the shelf or next to the pulse programming computer of anyone who designs sequences or is a serious user of MRI/S methods of any type. The book will stand the test of time, even in a field as rapidly evolving as MRI, and will become a definitive classic." - G.H. Glover, Stanford University School of Medicine (2005) "...a tour de force; the authors have written an exemplary pedagogical treatise on MRI pulse sequences targeted to scientists and engineers interested in understanding and constructing pulse sequences. While the book states as a prerequisite a basic understanding of MR physics, even someone with only a rudimentary understanding of MR can follow most of the discussion, which I attribute to the masterful execution by the authors. The writing is consistently good across all chapters...Anyone conducting research that makes use of the current state of MRI techniques should have this book on the shelf. It could serve as a reference for an advances course or a laboratory course on MRI pulses." - Medical Physics (May 2005)

I do recommend this book to everyone works within the field of MRI. It is a good friend when you get stuck with imaging sequences. It is easy to follow and understand the details. it makes you feel more confident when dealing with pulse sequences.

Thanks for such amazing book

Excellent Pulse Sequence Refrence 5 Oct. 2008
By S. A. Hurley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent overview and reference for MRI pulse sequences. It has been recommended to me as a reference by several scientists, and anyone who works in the MRI field should consider buying this book -- even if you are not a pulse programmer, this book will give you a much better understanding of different sequences and which one may be most appropriate for your research application. It does a good job of describing sequences in a qualitative as well as mathematical manner.

One slight problem with the book is that it is oriented towards just MRI physics, and thus if one wants to sit down at an actual scanner and try to program or implement the sequence, one might not have enough specific details about hardware-related issues (such as gradient duty cycles, RF power calibration, SAR, memory allocation, etc) to actually implement a sequence. Thus, the book is best supplemented with a review of current literature, as well as manufacturer documentation or examples of previously written pulse sequences.

Great concise book on pulse sequences 29 Oct. 2010
By Tok - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the best book I've seen so far for pulse sequence design. It's great because it has simple examples, and then goes in depth so its really easy to grasp concepts. It's different from books like Hacke. This book is awesome for more practical day-to-day type use in a scanner and reference for pulse sequence design and does well categorizing the types of sequences.
Excellent reference 30 Aug. 2011
By PS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book. As someone who works with MR pulse sequences, I find myself reaching for this book constantly. The explanations are clear and the book is really well-written. Most importantly, this book reads like a contemporary treatise on MR pulse sequences and techniques. A good investment for MR researchers -- highly recommended!

Handbook of MRI pulse sequences is the best handbook I had ever used 3 Sept. 2005
By M. Yin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I got to know this good handbook from an international conference. It was sold out in few days during the exhibition period. I strongly recommend every MRI guy own at least one copy of it. ^__^
