Description

This book describes the current status of the very rapidly developing field of high-field MR and examines the possibilities, challenges, and limitations of this fascinating technology. In the initial chapters, the basic technological background is explained in a non-technical way so as to promote understanding of the issues and concepts and avoid overwhelming the reader with excessive detail. Safety issues, methods, and contrast are then carefully considered. The final part of the book examines the diverse applications of high-field MR imaging in radiology, neuroscience, oncology, and other fields, with the aid of numerous high-quality illustrations. All chapters are written by leading experts who have taken great care to illustrate the potential and progress of the field in an informative and accessible manner. The book will appeal to all with a potential interest in the application of high-field MR imaging, including radiologists, neuroscientists, and oncologists.

Review Text

From the reviews:

"This superb book will be of great value to guide and assist radiologists in their daily clinical work. It would also be helpful to referring physicians from many clinical disciplines who are interested in high-field MRI, such as neurologists, neurosurgeons, orthopaedic surgeons and oncologists for a better clinical management of patients. ... it will appeal to all of these groups and will be an extremely valued reference book in every department."
