An indispensable companion in the MR suite! MRI is carried out under highly standardized conditions. Without knowledge of proper patient positioning and setting of parameters on the MR scanner, the quality of resultant images cannot be optimized.

This book provides in easy-to-use form the general principles of patient positing in MR imaging, and the appropriate scanning parameters.

The text is organized in a manner that follows the chronological order of examination steps:

- preparation for the examination and materials needed;

- specifics as to patient positioning and choice of coils;

- protocols for carrying out the examination;

- examples of recommended MR imaging sequence parameters;

- tips and tricks

Besides the classic indications arising from neurological and orthopedic disorders, this book includes positioning information for the entire body and adjunct examinations, including MR angiography and MR cholangiography examinations.

From the Author:

Although magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, has been with us for quite some time and is in widespread and routine use, good "recipe books" on the perfomrance of specific actual studies are hard to find. Since all imaging modalities, and particularly MRI, are carried out by a range of operators under varying clinical circumstances, standardizing the work flow becomes ever more important, because it is only through standardization that the quality of diagnostic imaging will improve. This pared-down book attempts to close the gaps in MRI protocols for routine applications. By leaving out all extraneous information, we have put together a power-packed "how-to-do-it" book. We have compiled protocals for most major studies, not only paying particular attention to the "classic" indications in neurology and orthopedics but also including the more recent developments such as MR angiography and MR cholangiography.
