From the reviews:
Radiology 2008: "... The book is well organized, with a linear and logical sequence. The chapters progress from basic to more complex concepts, and subsequent chapters build well on their predecessors. ... The authors employ clear and concise language, and explanations of even the most difficult concepts were quite adequate. ... The authors are concise yet thorough in their discussion of MR, as well as the many procedures and sequences for producing MR images. This book is reasonably priced and provides a good framework for further study into this complex topic." (Brian Suddarth, MD, Radiology: Volume 246: Number 3, March 2008)
Surgical and Radiological Anatomy Vol. 26, Issue 3, 2004: ..the authors describe in English in the plainest fashion, and within hardly more than 100 pages, the theroretical and technical bases of magnetic resonance imaging. ...the book should be warmly recommended to anyone after thry have become accustomed to MRI. In such circumstances this is a very comprehensive handbook, particularly useful as a reminder of the concepts of MRI.... a valuable technical handbook...
"This volume is the first translation into English of the German edition ... . it is a text for those who wish to familiarize themselves with the workings of magnetic resonance imaging. ... has a lucid yet not oversimplified text and extremely informative, high-quality images. The very useful glossary completes the book. ... the book is easy to carry around in a bag or brief case, and you will soon find yourself reading it whenever you have time. An excellent publication!" (E. K. J. Pauwels, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Vol. 32 (3), March, 2005)
From the reviews of the second edition:
"The book presents short, bite-sized chapters of MR information that can be easily digested. ... This book would suit part 1 trainees undertaking an MRI placement, or students wanting to cover the basics of MR. ... Similarly, this book would also be well suited to radiologists doing their training or radiographers ... . As an introduction to MRI this book meets its aim, and it does it very well too. ... a worthwhile purchase for anyone wishing to gain a good grounding in MRI." (John McLean, SCOPE, June, 2007)
