The Mayo Clinic Guide to Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Second Edition, is an updated version of the popular first edition of the same title. This handy reference text and soon to be classic text is designed to educate physicists, technologists and clinicians in the basics of cardiac MRI. A significantly expanded and reworked clinical imaging section provides numerous imaging protocols for the most commonly indicated cardiac MRI examinations as well as a plethora of well illustrated and described clinical examples. This text is a must have for anyone interested in developing their own cardiovascular MR imaging practice or advancing their existing skills. The addition of case-based questions and answers add a new dimension to this expanded second edition.
Readership: Residents, clinicians (radiologists and cardiologists), physicists and MR technologists. Cardiology and radiology trainees. Staff radiologists and cardiologists interested in beginning or continuing their education in cardiac MRI.
