Product Description

Review

'Finally there is a book that deals with all aspects of MR practice and theory in a format that will encourage those who are new to this area that they are not out of their depth. All in all I feel this is one of the best written and comprehensive MR texts available for those new to MRI as well as those with years of MR experience under their belts. Authors who are clearly passionate about MR have written this book and they wish to share this passion with the rest of us … the result is a book that I see being an essential piece of reference material to all MR practitioners.' The British Journal of Radiology

'We can find here replies to questions asked often by staff of MRI devices and by physician-referred patients to MR examinations. I am sure that especially radiologists - teachers and other experts lecturing in radiology will be enthusiastic about this outstanding book.' Physician and Technology

'… this is a well-written book with a casual syle that includes many excellent graphics and would be a useful addition to any MRI library.' Review in Health Physics

'This is an excellent and practical book. I thoroughly recommend it.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'At last, a book that sensibly explains the new MR techniques of the past few years. … I can say that I found this book well worthwhile, and believe many others will as well.' Doodies

'… I felt that this single volume book was very easy to read and gave the necessary information required to have a fairly firm grasp of MRI 'from theory to practice'.' Clinical Radiology

Book Description

MRI from Picture to Proton presents the basics of MR practice and theory in a unique way: backwards! The subject is approached just as a new MR practitioner would encounter MRI: starting from the images, equipment and scanning protocols, rather than pages of physics theory.

Format: Paperback
This book is actually funny, the laughing type of funny. It's not just the Bridget Jones' style week in the life of an MR radiographer, but hidden in the text are various one-liners - like the bit about taking off you watch and emptying your pockets when you visit CT! As well as lightening the subject the humour shows that the authors are not merely remote academics (it is a book primarily about MR physics) but real hands-on MR practitioners and excellent communicators.
So how hard is the physics? Well you have to read far into the book to get any. That's because it's written in a "back-to-front" manner. This ingenious trick enables the reader to become familiar with scanners, scanning and images without having to get bogged down with those bothersome protons and flipping and the like. Eventually the basic physics is introduced but by this time you are so well grounded in the practical aspects of MR - the pictures bit - that you are better equipped to handle the protons.
Another clever idea is having a main text, which is exceptionally easy to read, and optional advanced boxes (printed in a different colour). This makes the book accessible as a basic introductory text and also for more advanced students. It is possible however to learn almost all you need to know without reading the advanced blue bits (well at least I did). All the maths is in the advanced boxes -there are no equations in the main text (thankfully). Also, very handy for exams and interviews, each chapter starts with a summary of what you need to know from that chapter before it delves into the whys and wherefores.
So what does it cover?

Format: Paperback
Probably the most significant MRI book that covers the physics, safety and basic clinical applications. The book has a novel approach by working from picture to proton. It is easy to read due to the excellent writing. The diagrams are fantastic, being clear and well anotated. The book is excellent for the first time reader through to the advanced reader. Complex physics is there but is separated in boxes that can be read by those who like that sort of thing. If you want to dip in to check something out, it is well referenced within the book so that links to underpinning knowledge can be checked out in other chapters (it works).
The week in a life of an MRI radiographer introduces humour for the first time into a text like this.
I firmly believe that this will become a key text for many courses and departments with MRI and replace other popular texts as the essential first book to buy and hopefully be very fullfilling for much longer.

Format: Paperback
I bought this to help my practice in reporting MRIs rather than to pass exams. It has proved a good buy and has demystified pulse sequences to a certain extent. I am particularly pleased that specific pulse sequences on both siemens and phillips scanners are explained.
I still am confused about spatial encoding and fourier transformation but i dont think any book can make these subjects understandable!!
I would reccomend this book to radiologists who are interested in learning what those numbers in the top corner of the film actually mean.

At last a book about MRI which I didn't want to put down and which actually made me laugh out loud!
It is the best book I have read as far as understanding MRI physics and principles goes and makes a dry subject bearable and understandable.
I would thoroughly recommend it and think it will soon be indispensable in MRI depts.
