MRI from Picture to Proton presents the basics of MR practice and theory in a unique way: backwards! The subject is approached just as a new MR practitioner would encounter MRI: starting from the images, equipment and scanning protocols, rather than pages of physics theory. The reader is brought face-to-face with issues pertinent to practice immediately, filling in the theoretical background as their experience of scanning grows. Key ideas are introduced in an intuitive manner which is faithful to the underlying physics but avoids the need for difficult or distracting mathematics. Additional explanations for the more technically inquisitive are given in optional secondary text boxes. The new edition is fully up-dated to reflect the most recent advances, and includes a new chapter on parallel imaging. Informal in style and informed in content, written by recognized effective communicators of MR, this is an essential text for the student of MR.It will also help as a basis for understanding the diverse data-acquisition strategies examined in chapter 12. ... long time to acquire, that the progress of the scan involves a loud banging sound from the MR system and that sometimes (if not many slices are required) there is more silence than banging. ... An MR pulse sequence diagram is a simple means of showing how the RF and gradients are applied.
