Originally developed in the laboratory of Nobel Prize winner Paul C. Lauterbur in the early 1980s, the 12th edition (2018) of this standard textbook has been completely revised, updated, and new critical remarks and comments were added. The author, Peter A. Rinck, is one of the pioneers of nuclear magnetic resonance in medicine and of magnetic resonance imaging.

Radiology: One of the most lucid and best illustrated introductory MR texts.

European Radiology: An outstanding book, an excellent well-proven didactic approach.

Journal of Magnetic Resonance imaging (JMRI): The book more than fulfills its attempted purpose.

Amazon Review: This text is by far the best treatise of MRI at the basic level.

Academic Radiology: In summary, it is not only an ideal first text, but it's a bargain.

Fortschr Röntgenstr (RöFo): In fact, an MR expert has finally succeeded in putting himself in the MR beginner's shoes, explaining the necessary basic knowledge in a very vivid and entertaining way.

The author: The perfect book for those wanting to do research and needing to check or refresh the basics and recent developments.

About Peter A. Rinck

Rinck, Peter A.
Peter A. Rinck is a Royal University Professor of Radiology and Magnetic Resonance and has a Doctorate in History of Medicine. After a classical school education he attended medical school in Berlin (Free University of Berlin) and served his internship and residency in radiology, nuclear medicine and radiation therapy at Charlottenburg University Hospital in Berlin. Afterwards, until 1983, he was involved in the very early development of magnetic resonance imaging as Senior Research Associate at the State University of New York at Stony Brook where he worked in Paul C. Lauterbur's research group (Nobel Prize in Medicine 2003). The first version of this textbook was written at this time. Subsequently Rinck worked as physician-in-charge of one of the first two German government sponsored MR machines in Wiesbaden, Germany. Between 1987 and 1994 he was head of Europe's biggest clinical and research MR facility, at that time, at the University of Trondheim, Norway. Between 1986 and 2012 he was also Adjunct Professor at the School of Medicine and Pharmacy of the University of Mons-Hainaut in Belgium. Since 1982 Rinck is Chairman of the European Magnetic Resonance Forum, EMRF, and since 2008 President of the Council of The Round Table Foundation, TRTF. He is also Chairman of the Selection Committees of the the Pro Academia Prize and of the European Magnetic Resonance Award.
