The newest title in the popular Case Review Series, Duke Review of MRI Principles, by Wells Mangrum, MD; Kimball Christianson, MD; Scott Duncan, MD; Phil Hoang, MD; Allen W. Song, PhD; and Elmar Merkle, MD, uses a case-based approach to provide you with a concise overview of the physics behind magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Written by radiology residents, practicing radiologists, and radiology physicists, this multidisciplinary text introduces you to the basic physics of MRI and how they apply to successful and accurate imaging, interpretation, and diagnosis. Clinically relevant cases with associated questions and images reinforce your understanding of essential principles needed to confidently interpret a wide range of MRI images for all organ systems.
