)-- Since magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is carried out by a multitude of technologists and clinicians with varying levels of experience and under dissimilar clinical circumstances, standardization of workflows becomes an issue of central importance. The authors of MRI Parameters and Positioning had this idea firmly in mind when creating the original book and updating this recently released second edition. This concise how-to book, published by Thieme, attempts to close the gaps in MRI protocols for routine applications.
Radiologists and technicians develop their own way of working and tend to prefer certain sequences and protocols over time. Yet standardized protocols remain important and sometimes even seasoned veterans use them to check on how other professionals have solved specific problems.
With its consistent, pared-down layout and more than 300 illustrations, MRI Parameters and Positioning helps medical professionals quickly locate much-needed information whenever they need it. In this completely updated edition, the authors have included new images, expanded sections on MR angiography and whole-body MRI, and have added new material on the latest protocols such as MR urography, cholangiography, and colonography.
"Although MRI has been with us for quite some time and is in widespread and routine use, good 'recipe books' on the performance of specific actual studies are hard to find," states author Torsten Bert Moeller, MD.
