Here is the first textbook to present a practical overview of the basic
principles and clinical applications for 3 tesla (3 T) MR imaging. Organized
into sections according to anatomical location, each case study is presented in
a concise, two-page unit that enables the reader to digest and review the
material in small sections. The author describes the situations that dictate the
use of 3 T and explains the numerous clinical advantages of this field strength
by drawing comparisons to corresponding studies at 1.5 T.



Highlights:



  • Case studies from leading international experts
    covering the breadth of clinical MR

  • Recommendations for how to optimize image quality and
    how to interpret the clinical findings

  • Easy-to-follow descriptions of the strengths and
    limitations of 3 T

  • 400 high-quality clinical images and illustrations
    depicting key concepts

  • Discussion of the various pulse sequence approaches


Clinical 3T Magnetic Resonance is essential reading for
all radiologists, radiology residents, MR physicists, and MR technologists
seeking to master this emerging diagnostic tool.
