MR is a powerful modality. At its most advanced, it can be used not just to image anatomy and pathology, but to investigate organ function, to probe in vivo chemistry, and even to visualise the brain thinking. However, clinicians, technologists and scientists struggle with the study of the subject. The result is sometimes an obscurity of understanding, or a dilution of scientific truth, resulting in misconceptions. This is why MRI from Picture to Proton has achieved its reputation for practical clarity. MR is introduced as a tool, with coverage starting from the images, equipment and scanning protocols and traced back towards the underlying physics theory. With new content on quantitative MRI, MR safety, multi-band excitation, Dixon imaging, MR elastography and advanced pulse sequences, and with additional supportive materials available on the book's website, this new edition is completely revised and updated to reflect the best use of modern MR technology.
Review of first edition: 'Finally there is a book that deals with all aspects of MR practice and theory in a format that will encourage those who are new to this area that they are not out of their depth.' The British Journal of Radiology Review of first edition: 'I am sure that especially radiologists, teachers and other experts lecturing in radiology will be enthusiastic about this outstanding book.' Physician and Technology Review of first edition: '... this is a well-written book with a casual style that includes many excellent graphics and would be a useful addition to any MRI library.' Health Physics Review of first edition: 'This is an excellent and practical book. I thoroughly recommend it.' The Times Higher Education Supplement Review of second edition: '... easy to read and gave the necessary information required to have a fairly firm grasp of MRI from theory to practice.' Clinical Radiology 'At last, a book that sensibly explains the new MR techniques of the past few years. ... I can say that I found this book well worthwhile, and believe many others will as well.'
