Positioning in MRI is a clinical manual about the creation of magnetic resonance images. This manual focuses upon patient positioning and image planning.

The manual is organised by body region and provides valuable insight into -

  • Patient pathology on MRI.
  • Considerations when positioning both the patient and coil.
  • Imaging planes.
  • Anatomical image alignment.

This manual is a comprehensive highly visual reference to the planning and positioning of patients and coils in MR imaging. High quality imaging specific to patient pathology is encouraged through the focus on ‘considerations’ specific to coil and patient placement and imaging plane selection.

  • Over 200 MR images
  • Formulaic internal design assist use as clinical manual to MRI planning
  • Evidence base provided where appropriate (cranial neurology)
  • Image selection – assist learning principles that underpin good positioning and anatomical coverage
  • Explores positioning of patient and coils specific to individual treatment requirements
  • Evolve website – image collection (over 200 MR images) and additional case studies

Body MRI: Cases in Radiology serves as a ready reference of 141 cases and nearly 900 superb quality images of common and uncommon conditions encountered in the daily practice of body MRI. The book is specifically intended for radiology residents and fellows as a study guide to broaden clinical knowledge and improve diagnostic skills when reviewing MR images of the liver, biliary system, pancreas, urinary tract, adrenal glands, peritoneal cavity, spleen, gastrointestinal system, female genital tract, vascular system, and heart. The selected cases provide outstanding examples of various disease states and their appearances as demonstrated by MR imaging using a variety of pulse sequences. Each case is shown on the front page with a brief clinical history and multiple, carefully selected images that best show the important findings. When turning the page, the imaging findings, differential diagnosis and important teaching points are given in bullet-point format facilitating the learning process and allowing the reader to improve interpretation and diagnostic capability in body MRI. Cases are presented in random order to mimic the diagnostic challenges that typically occur when reading the daily worklist of cases in a routine clinical body MRI practice. Readers can also review the cases by organ system through the Index of Cases found in the back of the book. Body MRI Cases is also an excellent companion study guide to Essentials of Body MRI by the same authors. Together, these texts provide an excellent foundation in Body MRI.
