MRI for technologist contains 12 chapters, 460 MRI Images in the three orientations; sagital, axial and coronal planes, and 540 challenge questions. It is supported by the essential illustrations of real MRI images showing the standard planning for scanning each anatomical part in transverse, sagital and coronal orientations, the images are arranged in a way to keep the proper field of view, for example the axial abdomen has different dimensions from the coronal. additionally; there are various real MRI images showing the anatomical outlines of what technologist would expect to see from each acquired sequence. All chapters of this book follow the same format; this facilitates looking for information on specific issues and reflects the fact that scanning of any part of the body follows the same basic format with some modifications specific to each part of the body.
