MRI Basic Principles and Applications Second Edition Mark A. Brown, PhD and Richard C. Semelka, MD This updated edition provides a bridge between the theory of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and its implementation in commercial scanners. As with its popular predecessor, MRI: Basic Principles and Applications, Second Edition integrates a clear discussion of the basic physics of MRI, including resonance absorption, relaxation, and pulse sequences, with an overview of the guiding principles of its clinical application (such as motion artifact reduction and fat suppression techniques). With over 80 images and numerous line drawings illustrating and clarifying key concepts and applications, MRI: Basic Principles and Applications, Second Edition remains an essential introductory text for radiologists, technologists, and radiology
