About this book

It is with great pleasure that we present this completely revised English e- tion of our book How Does MRI Work? An Introduction to the Physics and Function of Magnetic Resonance Imaging only two years afer publication of the frst English edition. We are particularly pleased that our introductory textbook met with great approval in the English-speaking world and not just in the German-speaking countries. Tis success has been an enormous - centive for us to further improve and update the text. For this reason, we are now presenting a second edition. All chapters have been thoroughly revised and updated to include the latest developments in the ever-changing feld of MRI technology. In particular, the chapter on cardiovascular imaging has been improved and expanded. We gratefully acknowledge the contribution of Daniel Nanz, PhD, the author of this chapter. Moreover, two completely new chapters have been added: “Fat Suppression Techniques” and “High- Field Clinical MR Imaging”. Notwithstanding these additions, the intended readership of our book remains the same: it is not a book for MR specialists or MR physicists but for our students, residents, and technologists, in short, all those who are interested in MRI and are looking for an easy-to-understand introduction to the technical basis of this imaging modality at the beginning of their MRI training. Te second English edition presented here corresponds to and appears together with the completely revised ffh German edition.

Reviews

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)
