About this book

Written by a multitude of international experts, this book provides a comprehensive overview of both the physics and the clinical applications of MRI, including practical guidelines for imaging.

The authors define the importance of MRI in the diagnosis of several disease groups in comparison or combination with other methods. Chapters dealing with basic principles of MRI, MR spectroscopy (MRS), interventional MRI and functional MRI (fMRI) as well as the application of MRI in radiotherapy treatment planning illustrate the broad range of applications for MRI. Both standard and cutting-edge applications of MRI are included. Furthermore, chapters on molecular imaging and nanotechnology give glimpses into the future of the field and outline the potential role of MRI in molecular medicine.

This book is intended for a wide audience, including radiologists in general practice, those who specialize in MRI, physicists, and clinicians in other fields. Its clear explanations of the basic science of MR should prove helpful to students preparing for examinations. Moreover, as an in-depth and wide-ranging reference source, it should be of service to residents, young physicians just starting out, and even experienced physicians.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book provides a comprehensive overview of both basic sciences and practical applications, as well as guidance, and is intended for a wide audience, including practicing imaging specialists and basic scientists. The clear explanation of the basic sciences should be helpful as a daily companion and adviser to medical students and trainees in imaging fields. Magnetic Resonance Tomography should be placed in medical and imaging libraries as an in-depth and wide-ranging reference on MRI techniques and chemical applications." (E. Edmund Kim, The Journal of nuclear Medicine, February, 2009)
