7 Defining Image Size and Spatial Resolution8 Putting It All Together: An Introduction to Pulse Sequences; 9 Understanding, Assessing, and Maximizing Image Quality; 10 Artifacts: When Things Go Wrong, It's Not Necessarily All Bad; 11 Safety: First, Do No Harm; Part III To the Limit: Advanced MRI Applications; 12 Preparatory Modules: Saturation Techniques; 13 Readout Modules: Fast Imaging; 14 Volumetric Imaging: The Three-dimensional Fourier Transform; 15 Parallel Imaging: Acceleration with SENSE and SMASH; 16 Flow and Angiography: Artifacts and Imaging of Coherent Motion
Summary: This is a practical guide that offers a lucid introduction to the principles of MRI physics. The author, recognized in the imaging community for his exceptional teaching methods and lectures, has written an easy to understand text. Each chapter explains the "why" and "how" behind MRI physics. Readers will understand how altering MRI parameters will have many different consequences for image quality and the speed in which images are generated. Practical topics, selected for their value to clinical practice, include progressive changes in key MRI parameters, imaging time, and
