Description

This fourth edition of Abdominal-Pelvic MRI provides the reader with a significant update on earlier works. Modern diagnostic MRI relies on the practitioner's ability to distinguish between diseases through pattern recognition and experience, and this landmark reference provides the most complete coverage of magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen and pelvis, with particular emphasis on illustrating benign, malignant and inflammatory lesions * An established best-seller in this field updated with multiple brand new case figures supplying the reader with high quality examples of diagnoses and anatomy * Includes discussion of new sequences, such as diffusion-weighted imaging and a new chapter on MR/PET * Describes techniques and tips for controlling motion, including radial acquisition and shorter breath hold acquisition using techniques of multigradient parallel imaging in order to achieve high quality images * Offers practice advice and recommendations for contrast agents taking into account patient safety, efficacy, and cost * Accompanying digital edition offers rapid search and easy figure download
