The Physics of Clinical MR Taught Through Images Fourth Edition by Val Runge, Wolfgang Nitz, and Johannes Heverhagen presents a unique and highly practical approach to understanding the physics of magnetic resonance imaging. Each physics topic is described in user-friendly language and accompanied by high-quality graphics and/or images. The visually rich format provides a readily accessible tool for learning, leveraging, and mastering the powerful diagnostic capabilities of MRI.
More than 700 images, anatomical drawings, clinical tables, charts, and diagrams, including magnetization curves and pulse sequencing, facilitate acquisition of highly technical content.
Eight systematically organized sections cover core topics: hardware and radiologic safety; basic image physics; basic and advanced image acquisition; flow effects; techniques specific to the brain, heart, liver, breast, and cartilage; management and reduction of artifacts; and improvements in MRI diagnostics and technologies.
Cutting-edge topics including contrast-enhanced MR angiography, spectroscopy, perfusion, and advanced parallel imaging/data sparsity techniques.
Discussion of groundbreaking hardware and software innovations, such as MR-PET, 7 T, interventional MR, 4D flow, CAIPIRINHA, radial acquisition, simultaneous multislice, and compressed sensing.
A handy appendix provides a quick reference of acronyms, which often differ from company to company.

Here is the first textbook to present a practical overview of the basic principles and clinical applications for 3 tesla (3 T) MR imaging. Organized into sections according to anatomical location, each case study is presented in a concise, two-page unit that enables the reader to digest and review the material in small sections. The author describes the situations that dictate the use of 3 T and explains the numerous clinical advantages of this field strength by drawing comparisons to corresponding studies at 1.5 T.
Case studies from leading international experts covering the breadth of clinical MR
Recommendations for how to optimize image quality and how to interpret the clinical findings
Easy-to-follow descriptions of the strengths and limitations of 3 T
400 high-quality clinical images and illustrations depicting key concepts
Discussion of the various pulse sequence approaches
