The objective of this textbook is to teach, through images, a practical approach to magnetic resonance (MR) physics and image quality. Unlike prior texts covering this topic, the focus is on clinical images rather than equations. A practical approach to MR physics is developed through images, emphasizing knowledge of fundamentals which is important in achieving high image quality. The text is organized into concise chapters, each discussing an important point relevant to clinical MR and illustrated with images from routine patient exams. The topics covered encompass the breadth of this field, from imaging basics and pulse sequences to advanced topics including contrast-enhanced MR angiography, spectroscopy, perfusion and diffusion.
Discussion of the latest hardware and software innovations, such as multichannel-phased array coil technology and parallel imaging, is included as these topics are critical to current and future advances.

This updated edition of "The Physics of Clinical MR Taught Through Images" has been thoroughly rewritten and includes key information on how to apply an understanding of physics to improve diagnostic images. It teaches a practical approach to MR physics using images and emphasizes knowledge of the fundamentals that are important to achieving and maintaining high image quality using the readers MR equipment.Key Features:
Includes discussion of the latest hardware and software innovations in MR, such as advanced parallel RF transmission, MR-PET, and interventional MRCovers new imaging strategies critical to current and future advances, including compressed sensing and cartilage mapping, multi-shot EPI, and quantitative parametric mapping in the heartCases presented use images from actual patient examsMore than 600 high-quality clinical images illustrate concepts presented in the text
Radiologists, physicists, residents, and MR technologists will find this new edition to be a very useful reference that will help them quickly understand techniques and concepts in clinical MR that are taught visually through images.About the Author:
