Item description for How does MRI work?: An Introduction to the Physics and Function of Magnetic Resonance Imaging by Dominik Weishaupt, Victor D. Koechli & Borut Marincek...
This thoroughly revised second edition succinctly introduces the physics and function of magnetic resonance imaging. All important and clinically relevant aspects are presented in a clearly structured manner. The emphasis is on practical information including the latest trends and developments that are relevant for MRI in the clinical setting. The opening chapters describe the underlying physical principles of the MR experiment and the basic pulse sequences commonly used in clinical MRI. Other chapters are dedicated to more advanced techniques such as parallel imaging and cardiovascular MR imaging. The book is rounded out by chapters on MR contrast media, artifacts, high-field imaging, and safety concerns. An extensive glossary offers rapid access to the most important MRI terminology. The book is intended for readers looking for an easy to understand and concise introduction to this fascinating yet somewhat complex imaging modality at the beginning of their MRI training.

Great intermediate handbook Aug 26, 2008
This is a great leaping pad for someone who is unfamiliar with MRI, but comfortable with physics. Although some chapters are a little hard to understand, the good part is all the essentials are put in this little book, so it's easy to carry around town, or the bus, or metro.
Disclaimer Aug 10, 2006
I am the author of chapter 11 on Cardiovascular Imaging in the second edition of the book How Does MRI Work?" by Dominik Weishaupt et al.
I was not given the opportunity to read the English version of chapter 11 on Cardiovascular Imaging before publication of the English version of the book.
Unfortunately, the first press of the English version of chapter 11 on Cardiovascular Imaging, published under my name, contains a multitude of statements that I do not agree with. I believe these statements to deviate from the original German version or to even outright contradict the original German version. I encourage readers to carefully double check critical assertions made in chapter 11 on Cardiovascular Imaging. I consider the responsibility for errors introduced into chapter 11 of the first press of the English version in the process of translation from German to English to lie with the publisher.
