Item description for Magnetic Resonance Imaging by F. Knoet Marinus T. Vlaardingerbroek...
This textbook gives a comprehensive survey of the analytical treatment of MRI physics and engineering. It gives readers the background to apply MRI in medicine or design (sub)systems or sequences for new applications. Special attention is paid to the treatment of intrinsic artifacts of the different sequences, which can be described in a mathematically uniform way for the different scan methods. The book contains many images, especially showing specific properties of the different scan methods. The methods discussed include RARE, GRASE, EPI and Spiral Scan. The 2nd edition and the 3rd edition were expanded and refined. The chapter on motion and flow was expanded, and a chapter added on the configuration theory and multipulse sequences such as BURST, TSE and FFE. A.L. Luiten gives an overview of the early history of MRI imaging. The 3rd edition deals with stranger gradient and new RF coil systems, and sequences such as Balanced FFE and q-space diffusion imaging and SENSE.

Perfect book for the technical minded magnetic resonance fans Dec 18, 2007
The book discuss several important aspects of magnetic resonance. The findings are presented from the engineer's point of view, but with the accurate knowledge of clinical significance. The illustrations are well selected, demonstrating the basic concepts. Even I could use it to shed light on some relevant problems for my colleagues. It provides a good understanding of some crucial questions on its own. Steady state sequences and transient state imaging methods have their own chapter. I haven't found such a review on these topics anywhere else yet. Given the importance, since today's cardiovascular imaging widely use steady- and transient state techniques. It also discuss improvements in ultrafast imaging. After reading Haacke's, it was really refreshing to think it through again from another point of view. Let me tell you, that my home institution has a GE magnet, but I still like this book. One of my all-time favorites. I'll surely by the next edition.
Better than expected Nov 2, 2004
Not for the clinician, radiologist, or beginner MRI engineer. I agree with previous reviewer that the book resembles a set of notes, but they are excellent notes if you already know your MRI physics. The book is therefore nice to have for an overview, or reminder of a particular application (the preface *does* say "not meant for making a first acquaintance with MRI"). The images are quite acceptable (3rd ed) and well-chosen to demonstrate the ideas. Not 5 stars because the notes *are* too brief sometimes (another reviewer said shallow), making it impossible to fully understand, let alone implement, SENSE or Shinnar-LeRoux, for example, from just these notes.
A good MRI introduction book Nov 25, 2000
This is a good book for introducing MRI basics for non-experts. advanced scanning methods are discussed also. The applications section is very good and the references are valuable.
With my full respect to the Auther of this book Oct 18, 2000
Poor images,Poor Graphics and shallow content! This book is not for any proffessional in the field of clinical MRI. I can say that this book is just a collection of short notes designed for Philips engineers. The price (almost $80) of this book does not match the quality of content, the quality of images and the graphics as well ( hand drawing & illustration). If you are philips engineer think twice before you buy this book otherwise think 100 times to buy it for 80 $.
