Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a valuable technology used in diagnostic radiography. The clear, anatomical images that are produced in any plane, coupled with inherent safety for the patient and long-term cost effectiveness, have promoted the use and availability of MRI around the world.

The second edition of MRI in Practice continues to provide a comprehensive introduction to MRI, describing the essential concepts in a clear and accessible style. The physics theory of MRI is explained in detail and set out in an uncomplicated manner. The text has been thoroughly revised and updated with many new illustrations and images. Key topics including K Space and Echo Planar Imaging have been fully expanded to take into account urrent practices. The new edition retains the popular chapter format, which presents key points at the outset, followed by learning points and a questions section to help readers evaluate their comprehension of the text. A new chapter, 'Advances in MRI Techniques,' brings together all the relevant current developments, such as Functional Imaging, Perfusion, and Diffusion.

This book is an essential text for all student and practising radiographers, technologists and radiologists involved in MRI.
