Presents an overall analytical treatment of MRI physics and engineering. Special attention is paid to the treatment of intrinsic artefacts of the different sequences which can be described for the different scan methods. The book contains many images, especially showing specific properties of the different scan methods. The methods discussed include RARE, GRASE, EPI and Spiral Scan. The 3rd edition deals with stranger gradient and new RF coil systems, and sequences such as Balanced FFE and q-space diffusion imaging and SENSE.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews of the third edition:

"In summary the book treats almost all ingredients of MRI, generally at a good level with excellent illustrations and relevant bibliographic references and it does probably represent the best monograph devoted to the subject available today." (Physicalia, 25/2, 2003)

"The book can be recommended to specialists in medical physics who are involved in the use and research of magnetic resonance imaging." (European Radiology, 13/7, 2003)

"The treatment is mathematically detailed throughout but the inclusion of over 100 well annotated real images and example calculations reward the hard work needed with a very clear understanding of precisely how the different methods work and the extent of their limitations." (Contemporary Physics 2004, 45, page 441)

"Magnetic Resonance Imaging is still clearly intended as a book for the specialist but I think the third edition makes the material accessible to the beginning student ... as very reliable reference. ... the inclusion of over 100 well annotated real images and example calculations reward the hard work needed with a very clear understanding of precisely how the different methods work and the extent of their limitations. Since 1996 the book has certainly been my authority on MRI." (Dr. C. N. Guy, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 45 (5), 2004)

"The authors have undertaken the task to develop a coherent theoretical description of MRI, which can serve as a background for thorough understanding of recent and future developments in magnetic resonance imaging. ... the book can be recommended to specialists in medical physics who are involved in the use and research of magnetic resonance imaging." (European Radiology, Vol. 13 (7), 2003)

"This book is devoted to a comprehensive introduction to MR Imaging physics ... . The book is organised in chapters devoted to a unified topic and accompanied by illustrations. ... the book treats almost all ingredients of MRI, generally at a good level with excellent illustrations and relevant bibliographic references and its does probably represent the best monograph devoted to the subject available today." (Thierry Metens, Physicalia, Vol. 25 (2), 2003)
