Format: Paperback
This 300 page paper back has 400 high quality and relevant illustrations (mainly diagrams and line drawings) that greatly help to illustrate some otherwise difficult-to-grasp concepts. The emphasis is on the how and why of magnetic resonance imaging, not on the interpretation of the images.
The authors have successfully negotiated the narrow difference between a book that is filled with mind numbing details and one which is over simplified with a trivial approach. While not getting bogged down in minutia that are endlessly fascinating to physicists, but demoralizing to many physicians, they haven't avoided the concepts which form the basis of MRI such as, K-space, Fourier transform and pulse sequences. Nor have newer scanning techniques that involve tissue suppression and MRA been slighted.
At the end of each chapter a succinct "Key Points" section emphasizes the most relevant features of the preceeding chapter. Also included at the end of each chapter is a self-assessment quiz (with answers at the end of the book).
This book is excellent for MR technologists, radiology residents in board preparation and non-radiolgist physicians who want to get up-to-speed in this exciting and rapidly growing subdiscipline of diagnostic imaging.
If this book were a movie, I would give it an enthusiastic, "Two Thumbs Up."

I bought the Kindle edition of this text for a class and have quickly discovered some flaws in this edition. They are easily seen in the sample of chapter 1. Figures 1-2 through 1-4 are supposed to be graphs showing sin(x), cos(x), and sin(x) and cox(x) on the same plot, but they all show sin(x) in the Kindle edition. From the sample of the print edition, it appears to be correct. It just makes me wonder what other errors the Kindle edition contains if something that simple is wrong.

Great intro to the math needed to have a proper "vocabulary" to understand MR physics. While most readers have had the math in college, most have also forgotten much of it.
Enjoyed the approach throughout the book.
Strongly recommend.

I recently had to study for a board exam and was struggling with really grasping how MRI works, and I have a Bachelor's in physics! My mentor suggested this book, and after thumbing through her copy I immediately purchased one for myself. It gives an excellent overview and simple breakdown of everything from magnetization physics to how pulse sequences work. This is a great resource for anyone from the average consumer who's curious about MRI to the tech just starting in his/her studies.
