Handbook of MRI Technique, 4th Edition

Catherine Westbrook



379 pages



This handbook for new and experienced radiologists, radiographers, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technologists covers basic and advanced skills, from performing basic scanning techniques to making improvements in image quality and recognizing common errors. Part 1 covers theory and science related to scanning and practical advice on equipment, contrast media, and patient care. Part 2 gives detailed directions for MRI scanning, in chapters on anatomical areas. Each anatomical chapter begins with a color anatomical illustration and a bullet list of common indications and equipment, then provides detailed notes on patient positioning, outlines common protocols (including US and European guidelines), and discusses technical issues, patient considerations, and contrast usage. The art program offers high-quality color anatomical illustrations and b&w diagnostic images (some overlaid with color for highlighting specific areas). The companion web site contains interactive MCQs for self-assessment and interactive flashcards of book images. This fourth edition reflects the latest technologies and practice guidelines; it also contains chapter-ending key points. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
