Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of scan used to diagnose health conditions that affect organs, tissue and bone. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body.
Divided into two sections, this concise guide introduces radiology trainees to the principles, sequences and interpretation of MRI.
The first section describes the basic principles, instrumentation and interpretation of MRI, whilst the second section discusses the higher applications of the technique.
Authored by Canadian radiologist Govind Chavhan, this second edition includes 250 images and illustrations, as well as a photo CD, to assist trainees with learning.
