Essentials of Clinical MR provides readers with the must-have background they need to read magnetic resonance images and make successful clinical diagnoses.Intuitively arranged by body region, this user-friendly manual explores the most commonly encountered diseases through concise case examples supplemented by clearly labeled MRI images. Using the case descriptions as starting points, each section thoroughly surveys a different anatomic area and provides tips on imaging techniques followed by an in-depth discussion of the image interpretation.Features
  • Complete coverage of the diseases most frequently seen in the clinical practice of MRI
  • Over 650 images clearly illustrate the MR appearance of each disease
  • Highly relevant information on contrast media and contrast enhanced MRA
  • This easily accessible guide is both the ideal introductory text for radiology residents, MR technologists, and medical students, as well as a practical daily reference for anyone involved in the interpretation of clinical MRIs. Residents will find it an invaluable companion when studying for exams.I highly recommend it.--Radiologic Technology
