Beginning with a hardware overview and moving through tissue characteristics, image quality and flow imaging, Rad Tech's Guide to MRI: Basic Physics, Instrumenation, and Qaulity Control should be used as both an introduction and an examination preparation tool.

Each book in the Rad Tech's Guide Series covers the essential basics for those preparing for their certifying examinations and those already in practice.

Of all the books and materials I've read on MRI, Mr. Faulkner's small book is the best written on understanding the key components to MRI. It is invaluable to someone who desires to understand the basic physics and is the single best foundation for a technologist to build on. It also seemed to dovetail with ARRT's perspective in my Board Exam. If a tech had only one book to reference as he/she trains clinically, this would be it, in my opinion. I also attended Mr. Faulkner's MRI class in Chattanooga, TN where he gives monthly seminar and a week's review and it is the best 5 day seminar on MRI possible. If you read this book first and prepare questions for the seminar, you are 99% likely to come away with a highly expert understanding. If you have been out of MRI for a long time and need to review to get back up to speed, this book is the answer to that need. He wrote it for the ages. The basic physics will always apply as the technology advances. It is a tribute to love and understanding of MRI. Absolute Kudos.

Easy to read and understand as far as physics go. Confusing typo's in several spots. There was author contact info and I did contact the author to clarify what I felt was a typo that stumped me. He immediately (within hours) contacted me and was very nice, polite and helpful. I also took a course in Las Vegas from this author. Made a very dry subject as interesting as anyone could possibly make it. I passed my MRI exam with a 90%. Thank you Mr. Faulkner.

an excellent tool to use to revise for the MRI boards. However you will still need other text books as well but this one focuses on the physics that will almost surely come on the exam paper.

Great study guide. Written in "note" style with bulleted notes. Small size that easily fits into pocket for studing anywhere. Written by "The Guru of MRI." Worth the $
