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.
The breadth of coverage, rich visuals, and succinct text make this manual the perfect reference for radiology residents, practicing radiologists, researchers in MR, and technologists.

Imaging plays an integral role in the diagnosis and intervention of debilitating, often fatal vascular diseases of the brain, such as ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, aneurysms, and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Written by a world renowned neuroradiologist and pioneer in the early adoption of magnetic resonance (MR) technology, Imaging of Cerebrovascular Disease is a concise yet remarkably thorough textbook that advances the reader's expertise on this subject.
The text draws on the authors vast personal experience, case studies, and traditional educational sources, offering didactic dialogue with accompanying images. A practical clinical resource organized into six chapters, this book offers unparalleled breadth in delineating the diagnostic and treatment usages of modern imaging techniques. Chapter one sets a foundation with extensive coverage of modalities and their applications, including MR, computed tomography (CT) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Subsequent chapters cover utilization of imaging techniques specific to underlying pathologies.
In-depth discussion of medical and neuroradiologic/neurosurgical interventions, focusing on the use of imaging prior to, during, and following treatment
Comprehensive text enhanced with more than 700 high-quality images
Detailed evaluation of normal brain anatomy, as well as gyral anatomy in brain ischemia, an important subtopic
Advantages, disadvantages, mortality, and morbidity of surgery (clipping) versus endovascular techniques (coiling and flow diversion) for aneurysms
Presented in a style that facilitates cover-to-cover reading, this is an essential tool for residents and fellows, and provides a robust study guide prior to sitting for relevant certification exams. It is also a quick, invaluable reference for radiologists, neurosurgeons, and neurologists in the midst of a busy clinical day.

An image-rich neuroradiology reference and board prep from renowned experts
Neuroradiology: The Essentials with MR and CT, Second Edition, written by world-renowned neuroradiologist and MRI pioneer Val Runge, builds on the acclaimed prior edition. The splendidly illustrated compendium features in-depth discussion of important imaging findings, focused primarily on common disease processes. An impressive cadre of international experts contribute to the text, which is written from a clinical radiology perspective and draws from firsthand experiences. MRI physics pearls and tips throughout the book will help radiologists avoid common pitfalls.
Designed as a practical educational resource for clinical neuroradiology, the text is divided into three sections: the brain, head and neck, and spine. The brain and spine chapters are divided into subsections covering normal anatomy and major disease categories such as congenital, traumatic, degenerative, vascular, infectious, and neoplastic. Head and neck chapters are organized by major anatomic region. Clinical cases encompass the use of advanced imaging techniques such as perfusion, high-resolution imaging, and spectroscopy.
About 1,300 high-quality MR and CT images illustrate relevant findings and cases, including those often not well-described in more traditional academic textbooks
New figures, updates on ultra-high-field 7T MRI, and additional in-depth text on cerebrovascular disease – especially brain aneurysms and AVMs
Covers a wide array of diseases – from stroke and multiple sclerosis to cases one might see once a year, such as glutaric acidemia type 1 and CADASIL
This excellent clinical resource provides a robust study prep for the boards and is a must-read for radiology residents prior to neuroradiology rotation. A quick reference for diagnosing challenging cases encountered in daily practice, it will also benefit neuroradiology fellows and general radiologists.
