About this book

 

MRI provides the best means of imaging the bone marrow directly and of non-invasively assessing its composition. Normal age-related bone marrow changes, alterations related to red marrow reconversion, and pathological bone marrow processes generally conform to certain patterns that reflect the underlying marrow changes and can be clearly recognized on MR images. In addition to conventional pulse sequences, advanced MRI techniques such as Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MRI and Diffusion-Weighted Imaging depict marrow changes at the microvascular and cellular level respectively.

This book provides radiologists with in-depth information on the MRI appearances of normal, abnormal and treated marrow following a structured, pattern-based approach. MRI findings for various diseases that affect the bone marrow, particularly those of a malignant nature, are presented in detail. MRI pattern recognition not only offers a systematic approach to image interpretation and diagnosis but also has prognostic implications with regard to some disease entities. Each chapter includes a wealth of high-quality images, together with Key Points summarizing the most important information.

In addition to radiologists, practitioners with an interest in hematology and oncology will find this textbook-atlas to be a valuable resource for the latest, clinically relevant advances in bone marrow imaging.

Reviews

“This is a fantastic book with well-considered chapters and extensively researched references looking at the imaging characteristics of bone marrow disease on MRI by describing a pattern-based approach for image interpretation. … The main focus of the book is interpretation and diagnosis of diseases based on MRI patterns. … This book is mainly aimed at radiologists, but would also prove a valuable reference text for practitioners with an interest in haematology or oncology.” (Ian Pressney and Asif Saifuddin, RAD Magazine, August, 2015)

“This is an in-depth book on the MRI appearances of normal, abnormal, and treated bone marrow. … it provides a pattern-based approach useful for both teaching and in day-to-day clinical practice. The audience includes all radiologists reading MRI examinations, including those in private and academic practice, as well as those in residency. The book also may be a resource for practitioners with an interest in hematology and oncology.” (B. Keegan Markhardt, Doody's Book Reviews, May, 2015)
