## Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Physical Principles and Sequence DesignNew edition explores contemporary MRI principles and practices Thoroughly revised, updated and expanded, the second edition of
Readers familiar with the first edition will find much new material, including: - New chapter dedicated to parallel imaging
- New sections examining off-resonance excitation principles, contrast optimization in fast steady-state incoherent imaging, and efficient lower-dimension analogues for discrete Fourier transforms in echo planar imaging applications
- Enhanced sections pertaining to Fourier transforms, filter effects on image resolution, and Bloch equation solutions when both rf pulse and slice select gradient fields are present
- Valuable improvements throughout with respect to equations, formulas, and text
- New and updated problems to test further the readers' grasp of core concepts
Three appendices at the end of the text offer review material for basic electromagnetism and statistics as well as a list of acquisition parameters for the images in the book. Acclaimed by both students and instructors, the second edition of |
