MRI from Picture to Proton (2nd ed.)

by Donald W. McRobbie, Elizabeth A. Moore, Martin J. Graves, Martin R. Prince

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. The reader is brought face-to-face with issues pertinent to practice immediately, filling in the theoretical background as their experience of scanning grows. Key ideas are introduced in an intuitive manner which is faithful to the underlying physics but avoids the need for difficult or distracting mathematics. Additional explanations for the more technically inquisitive are given in optional secondary text boxes. The new edition is fully up-dated to reflect the most recent advances, and includes a new chapter on parallel imaging. Informal in style and informed in content, written by recognized effective communicators of MR, this is an essential text for the student of MR.

In The Press

'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.'
