The MRI Manual
Robert B. Lufkin
Mosby, 1998 - Medical - 466 pages
Extensively rewritten and expanded, this new second edition remains the most thorough, practical, and economical introductory guide to both the principles and the clinical applications of MRI. It offers comprehensive yet concise coverage of all aspects of MR physics and technology, plus complete discussions of clinical aspects -- all with an informal and direct writing style for ease of use. A conveniently-sized paperback, it serves triple duty as an introductory text, a day-to-day manual, and a handy reference for those new to the field of MR, as well as for those who need an update on recent developments in technology and practice.
Includes more than 600 high-quality illustrations and MR scans to enhance descriptions of clinical aspects of MRI. Highlights the effects of MR physics and technology on imaging throughout -- a topic often left uncovered in most introductory MR texts. Describes normal MR appearances of organs at different pulse sequences for ease of comparison. Presents imaging strategies and protocols for each disease process, including recommended pulse sequences, use of surface coils, and MR contrast agents. 27077 Provides a comparative look at the diagnostic advantages and disadvantages of MR versus other modalities in similar situations. Offers complete coverage of MR technique and preparation, with special emphasis on the pediatric patient Discusses the role of MRI in staging tumors, assisting the reader with this often difficult process.
