Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a valuable technology used in diagnostic radiography. The clear, anatomical images which can be 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. This edition provides a comprehensive introduction to MRI, describing the essential concepts and explaining the physics theory of MR in detail. 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 account of current practice. Learning points and a questions section aim to help the reader to evaluate their understanding of the text. This book should be of interest to all student and practising radiographers, technologists and radiologists involved in MRI.
