Consistent image quality and fast–scanning techniques are among the goals of current magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology. To maximize the diagnostic possibilities of MRI techniques, especially in the increasingly vital area of abdominal MR, the right reference can make all the difference.
Distinguished by its all–inclusive coverage and rich illustrations with detailed captions, Primer on MR Imaging of the Abdomen and Pelvis is just such a reference.
Ideal for radiologists, radiology residents, MR technologists, and physicians interested in MRI of abdominal disease, this definitive guide uses a clear pattern–recognition approach, with chapters organized around organ systems and pathology. It offers clinicians an unmatched guide to high–quality MRI studies of the abdomen and pelvis, focusing on disease processes in the liver, gallbladder and bile ducts, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, and more.
Primer on MR Imaging of the Abdomen and Pelvis also provides critical coverage of MRI sequences, from the most up–to–date gradient echo and parallel imaging techniques to standard spin–echo sequences. In addition, you′ll find a thorough review of modern imaging protocols and strategies, including those for the uncooperative patient.
Supported by end–of–chapter summary notes and helpful summary tables, Primer on MR Imaging of the Abdomen and Pelvis is the most clinically relevant guide to the successful use of MRI to image the abdomen and pelvis, as well as a concise yet comprehensive description of the full range of diseases of the abdomen and pelvis.
