Description:

Fundamentals of Body MRI―a new title in the Fundamentals of Radiology series―explains and defines key concepts in body MRI so you can confidently make radiologic diagnoses. Dr. Christopher G. Roth presents comprehensive guidance on body imaging―from the liver to the female pelvis―and discusses how physics, techniques, hardware, and artifacts affect results. In print and online at www.expertconsult.com, this detailed and heavily illustrated reference will help you effectively master the complexities of interpreting findings from this imaging modality.

Master MRI techniques for the entirety of body imaging, including liver, breast, male and female pelvis, and cardiovascular MRI

Avoid artifacts thanks to extensive discussions of considerations such as physics and parameter tradeoffs

User’s Review:

“Fundamentals of Body MRI has been long overdue – as one of the most complex fields in radiology, body MRI needs a ‘fundamentals’ text. The volume fulfills that need, giving readers authoritative coverage of key concepts in body MRI. In print and online, this detailed and heavily illustrated reference will help readers effectively master the complexities of interpreting findings from this imaging modality. Abstention from the passive tense further enhances the readability of this text.” – SirReadaLot.org

LOVE it. Best fifty-something bucks I have spent in months. Really great nuts and bolts approach to body MRI. It’s cheap (at least the kindle version is) and the pictures are adequate (viewed on a kindle fire HD). Not too big, not too short. Very readable style, easily digestible. GREAT tables and useful figures. Could comfortably finish with dedicated reading over a month long body rotation. Not comprehensive–if you already have a handle on the basics and want to flesh out the zebras, this is not your book. It does not cover anything other than bread and butter body MRI (no prostate MR for example, nothing on rare liver tumors I have barely heard of). What I like the most about this book is it very direct and oriented towards the resident as they first encounter the body MR service. There is a beginning chapter on MRI physics which is decent and reasonably concise. I don’t think I could have used it as my only MRI physics information but using it in conjunction with other “MRI physics for dorks”-type books it was a readable concise summary. The subsequent chapters give very practical advice for how to approach the body MR study. The book covers what sequences I should expect to see on a given study (like, the liver) and what types of things I should be looking for on each set of images (like lymphadenopathy on DWI, susceptibility on the in phase images and fat suppression (microscopic) on the out of phase imaging, where the FOV should be centered for a given sequence–practical stuff). Then it goes through the basics of what to look for in common pathologies (like how can I tell a FNH from an adenoma on MRI). It even discusses sample search patterns for various sequences and gives sample reports. In sum, I feel like it does a very good job of covering the basics in language a first or second year radiology resident with no prior body MR training easily understands. I can now explain (such as to my attending if I am asked) whether the study is adequate for a given purpose, what the major findings are, and generate a preliminary report that is not an embarassment. I am about half way through the book now (after a week of reading) and I am very very happy with this purchase. I initially purchased the Brant Essentials of Body MRI book and discovered it was not “essential” enough for me (it didn’t actually tell me how to read a study; not basic enough). So, I shelved that one and then found this one. Once I have finished this book and made an adequate foundation then I will move on to the Brant book (probably the next body rotation; since I already bought it and it cost twice what this one did).
