Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book provides technologists and students with not only a baseline for MR image acquisition, but also a standard of quality that should be consistently duplicated to provide the healthcare team with quality diagnostic images. This is a must read for any student or beginning technologist. It does a great job of providing a practical, realistic approach to MRI that avoids confusing physics and equations. I have never seen another book that packed as much useful and simplistic information into such a small package." - Karl Freund, RT(R) MR, Froedtert Hospital (4 Star Doody Rating)

First let me give you a little background. I am an mri tech with about 1 years experience in the field. As many mri techs have learned that are new to the field, when you first get out there on your own, its kinda scary. Unlike most xray techs who have a few other techs around in the department when you have questions, most mri techs are by themselves. Anyways, this book was my best friend the first few months of my new job. I happen to work on a ge machine, which is what this book is based off of. Thats not to say if you work on a siemens or toshiba that this wouldnt help, it still shows how to set up the slices, how to angle and gives you other technical parameters, just if youre working on a ge, that would be ideal for this book. I love how it shows you the actual slices and where they should be placed, what the actual scan should look like and different views of different planes. Also I love that it gives you a little anatomy diagram next to each part that youre potentially scanning. Great book for new techs, I highly recommend it!

This is a great reference book that is so far unique in the collection of MRI books out there as a spiral-bound have-next-to-the-scanner book. The next nearest book out there is Handbook of MRI Technique, though this book is much more detailed in both sequences and specific anatomy areas. This book lists out the common pulse sequences for both 1.5T and 3T, and also displays basic scan plane prescriptions. There are also line drawings of the anatomy of interest, similar to the drawings found in Sectional Anatomy for Imaging Professionals. There is also valuable information found at the beginning of each chapter which describes some of the rationale for some of the PSD selection, coils, contrast, artifacts, etc...
The charts in the book list actual parameters and imaging options for each sequence, with an additional blank chart in each section meant for reader to write in their own site's standard sequences. With customized saved protocols in most scanning software, I question how useful the blank tables are, other than for general sequence listings.
In future editions of this book, I would like to see a column for "Frequency direction" with it filled in as A/P, R/L, S/I. The listed "SPF swap phase & freq" can still be ambiguous and sometimes coil dependent. Other improvements I would make would be graphical views of sat band positions, listing of an estimated scan time per sequence, and also a brief discussion on the use of options like ZIP2, ZIP512, sequential, etc...

From the beginning learner to the experienced tech, this book is a must. It's small and spiral bound. Can travel with you anywhere. I am a 6 month in-training tech and It is amazing! Even the 30 yr experienced tech with me is amazed by the accuracy of this book. I have spent tons of money on learning aids and this is by far the best purchase. I am positive I will keep this handy throughout my career.

I love this book and have shared it with other coworkers, students even application reps and doctors when there were questions about protocols and parameters this would get us right where we were wanting to be! Good investment!

A must for all technologists. I did MR for 12 years and left the field to do other modalities. This booklet had all the latest sequences and is very informative.It has helped to bridge the gap of what I knew and how the field has changed. Plus it has many of the protocols we are using or can suggest some in addition due to this booklet. A must!

Helpful to newbie MR techs learning the basic protocols, scans planes, and relevant anatomy in most exams. Veteran techs already know this stuff from experience but's a good reference when you're rusty.

From reading about this handbook I was really hoping for something that showed how to place slices showing 2planes, but it only places slices on one plane. If you use GE it is a helpful book for protocals and pulse sequences, but if you don't use GE it isn't helpful at all.

I like the concept of this book. Really appreciate it being spiral bound which makes it easy to carry in your bag, etc. Would recommend to anyone who wishes to learn and/or refresh their memory on proper line placement for MRI anatomy. Just what I was looking for....
