MRI Handbook presents a concise review of the physical principles underlying magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), explaining MR physics, patient positioning, and protocols in an easy-to-read format. The first five chapters of the book introduce the reader to the basics of MR imaging, including the relaxation concept, MR pulse sequences, and MR imaging parameters and options. The second part of the book (chapters 6-11) uses extensive illustrations, images, and protocol tables to explain tips and tricks to achieve optimal MR image quality while ensuring patient safety. Individual chapters are devoted to each major anatomic region, including the central nervous, musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular systems. By using annotated MR images and examples of patient positions used during scanning correlated with sample protocols and parameters, MRI Handbook is a practical resource for imaging professionals to use in the course of their daily practice as well as for students to learn the basic concepts of MR imaging.

From the reviews:

"The book is written for radiologists, technologists, research associates, and others who wish to learn MRI. ... The book does a good job of describing the physical principles of MRI in a clear and concise manner. It also provides many details for protocols and imaging parameters for various studies. It should serve as a useful reference for those who wish to look up various features of protocols or patient positioning for MRI studies." (Bennett S. Greenspan, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
