  • Key Features

    • Review the basic physics of MRI in a concise, high-yield manner and learn how to apply them for successful and accurate imaging, interpretation, and diagnosis.
    • Master 17 essential MRI principles you need to know through clinically relevant cases accompanied by associated questions and 600 images that reinforce your understanding and help you confidently interpret a wide range of MRI images.
    • Effectively diagnose disease in all organ systems. Authors are fellowship-trained in each body system – neuro, breast, body, vascular and MSK, providing you with practical guidance in every area
    • Focus on the information that’s most relevant to your needs from a multidisciplinary author team comprised of radiology residents, practicing radiologists and radiology physicists.
    • See the underlying simplicity behind MRI physics. Despite employing the same MRI principles, similar imaging systems use slightly different names. A simplified explanation of these principles and how they are applied to each body system deepens your understanding and helps avoid any confusion.
