The book includes chapters on MRI Physics, Patient preparation, four glossaries and head to foot instructions on how to perform an MRI scan. The handbook is geared to the practicing MRI technologist and student MRI technologists. The handbook was written as training tool for the student MRI technologist and as a reference handbook for the practicing MRI Technologist. The book is not a textbook, but rather a daily reference tool to supplement a bona-fide course of study along with an appropriate amount of clinical training. It is expected that practicing MRI technologists can use this handbook well after a training program is completed. The approach is quite practical in that an individual with appropriate clinical experience can perform scans of any anatomy. It is comprehensive in that it takes into account virtually every MRI examination performed. The handbook depends on illustrations to convey the subject matter. The images used are actual images from MRI examinations which demonstrate anatomy and illustrate the desired outcome of an MRI examination. Color illustrations are provided for diagrams. The main feature of the handbook is in its approach to the material. The handbook begins with preliminary sections. Sections on scanning using a step-by-step Cook Book approach, from the tools to use, the landmarks to identify and the protocols to be used follow, and are the crux of the handbook. The Illustrations bring it all together so that the reader can identify the expected end result. "
