MRI from Picture to Proton presents the basics of MR practice and theory in a unique way: backwards! The subject is approached just as a new MR practitioner would encounter MRI: starting from the images, equipment and scanning protocols, rather than pages of physics theory. The reader is brought face-to-face with issues pertinent to practice immediately, filling in the theoretical background as their experience of scanning grows. Key ideas are introduced in an intuitive manner which is faithful to the underlying physics but avoids the need for difficult or distracting mathematics. Additional explanations for the more technically inquisitive are given in optional secondary text boxes. The new edition is fully up-dated to reflect the most recent advances, and includes a new chapter on parallel imaging. Informal in style and informed in content, written by recognized effective communicators of MR, this is an essential text for the student of MR.

Clinical Cardiac MRI is a comprehensive textbook intended for everyone involved in magnetic resonance imaging of the heart. It is designed both as a useful guide for newcomers to the field and as an aid for those who routinely perform such studies. The first edition, published in 2004-5, was very well received within the cardiac imaging community, and has generally been considered the reference because of its completeness, its clarity, and the number and quality of the illustrations. Moreover, the addition of a CD-ROM showing 50 real-life cases significantly enhanced the value of the book. In this second edition, the aim has been to maintain the same quality while incorporating the newest insights and developments in this rapidly evolving domain of medical imaging. The four editors, all experts in the field, have taken great care to ensure a homogeneous high standard throughout the book. Finally, the selection of 100 real-life cases, added as online material, will further enhance the value of this textbook.

Ultra-Low Field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

A New MRI Regime

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199347883

Category: Medical

Page: 416

View: 1713

This book is designed to introduce the reader to the field of NMR/MRI at very low magnetic fields, from milli-Tesla to micro-Tesla, the ultra-low field (ULF) regime. The book is focused on applications to imaging the human brain, and hardware methods primarily based upon pre-polarization methods and SQUID-based detection. The goal of the text is to provide insight and tools for the reader to better understand what applications are best served by ULF NMR/MRI approaches. A discussion of the hardware challenges, such as shielding, operation of SQUID sensors in a dynamic field environment, and pulsed magnetic field generation are presented. One goal of the text is to provide the reader a framework of understanding the approaches to estimation and mitigation of low signal-to-noise and long imaging time, which are the main challenges. Special attention is paid to the combination of MEG and ULF MRI, and the benefits and challenges presented by trying to accomplish both with the same hardware. The book discusses the origin of unique relaxation contrast at ULF, and special considerations for image artifacts and how to correct them (i.e. concomitant gradients, ghost artifacts). A general discussion of MRI, with special consideration to the challenges of imaging at ULF and unique opportunities in pulse sequences, is presented. The book also presents an overview of some of the primary applications of ULF NMR/MRI being pursued.

Wie funktioniert MRI?

Wie funktioniert eigentlich MRI? Diese Frage wird so oft gestellt, daß wir uns entschlossen haben, unser Modell von der Funktionsweise dieser faszinierenden und zukunftsweisenden Methode zusammen zufassen. Modell, notabene, denn in Tat und Wahrheit sind die physikali schen und technischen Hintergründe viel komplizierter, als wir sie hier darstellen. Aber dieses Skript richtet sich auch nicht an Physiker innen und Physiker, sondern an all diejenigen, die sich für MRI inter essieren, regelmäßig damit zu tun haben oder einfach sonst genauer wissen möchten, was hinter MRI steckt, also z. B. an Ärztinnen und Ärzte, MTRAs, Studentinnen und Studenten. Das Ziel ist deshalb nicht eine fundierte und exakte Abhandlung aller physikalischen Zusam menhänge und Formeln, sondern eine (hoffentlich) verständliche Einführung in die Prinzipien der MR-Bildgebung. Insbesondere werden (hoffentlich!) alle wichtigen Begriffe behan delt, die auch in der klinischen Anwendung von Bedeutung sind, und es wird versucht, die zugrundeliegenden physikalischen Vorgänge verständlich zu machen. Es geht also trotz allem nicht ohne ein bi߭ chen Physik! Wir danken allen, die uns bei der Verbesserung dieses Skripts mit Rat und Kritik geholfen haben. Besonderer Dank gebührt an dieser Stelle Herrn Constantin von Weymarn, der bei der Überarbeitung des Skripts geholfen und die physikalischen Grundlagen abgesichert hat. Außerdem danken wir Herrn Johannes Fröhlich von der Firma Guerbet AG für seine zahlreichen konstruktiven Anregungen. Wir sind auch in Zukunft froh um jede Kritik, die es uns ermöglicht, diese Ein führung zu verbessern, damit sie ihr Ziel erreichen kann.

This book examines multi-quantum magnetic resonance imaging methods and the diagnostics of brain disorders. It consists of two Parts. The part I is initially devoted towards the basic concepts of the conventional single quantum MRI techniques. It is supplemented by the basic knowledge required to understand multi-quantum MRI. Practical illustrations are included both on recent developments in conventional MRI and the MQ-MRI. This is to illustrate the connection between theoretical concepts and their scope in the clinical applications. The Part II initially sets out the basic details about quadrupole charge distribution present in certain nuclei and their importance about the functions they perform in our brain. Some simplified final mathematical expressions are included to illustrate facts about the basic concepts of the quantum level interactions between magnetic dipole and the electric quadrupole behavior of useful nuclei present in the brain. Selected practical illustrations, from research and clinical practices are included to illustrate the newly emerging ideas and techniques. The reader should note that the two parts of the book are written with no interdependence. One can read them quite independently.
