By Mathias Goyen

All the medical functions of whole-body MRI--together in a single crucial reference!

"This booklet, to my wisdom, is the 1st of its sort and provides a hands-on method of the evolving box of whole-body MRI, which provides the reader instruments to successfully make the most of and optimize applicatino of whole-body MRI expertise within the sufferer care setting."--F. Scott Pereles, MD, Salinas Valley Radiologists

Superbly illustrated, and written by means of major specialists who helped identify MRI as a diagnostic instrument, this clinically correct source places whole-body MRI into point of view like no different textual content. the 1st part covers the technical necessities of whole-body MRI, in addition to its ideas and linked information processing. next sections provide a pragmatic examine all elements of whole-body MRI from a scientific perspective--including its use in sufferers with peripheral arterial occlusive illness and in metastasis screening.


  • The purely hands-on method of the evolving box of whole-body MRI-filled with instruments to optimize whole-body MRI expertise within the sufferer care setting
  • Complete assurance of the entire most modern whole-body MRI technical necessities, ideas, and linked info processing
  • Richly illustrated presentation of the medical parts of cardiovascular research and musculoskeletal diseases
  • Overview of oncological whole-body imaging that addresses the comparability of whole-body MRI with bone scintigraphy within the detection of bone metastases, and with FDG-PET because it pertains to whole-body staging
  • Detailed evaluation of either the scientific and experimental questions referring to whole-body MRI

5 Tesla magnets have a bore length of typically approx. 160 cm (dashed line) and a bore diameter of typically approx. 60 cm, this short magnet with the same field strength has a magnet length of just approximately 125 cm with a wider bore diameter of approximately 70 cm. Compared to the homogeneous FOV of a standard magnet (FOV 1), the useable homogeneous FOV of the short magnet (FOV 2) is constrained by the shorter magnet design – at least in the longitudinal direction. This has consequences for whole-body MRI.
