Now in its updated Third Edition, MRI: The Basics is an easy-to-read, clinically relevant introduction to the physics behind MR imaging. The book features large-size, legible equations, state-of-the-art images, instructive diagrams, and questions and answers that are ideal for board review. The American Journal of Radiology praised the previous edition as qan excellent text for introducing the basic concepts to individuals interested in clinical MRI.q This edition spans the gamut from basic physics to multi-use MR options to specific applications, and has dozens of new images. Coverage reflects the latest advances in MRI and includes completely new chapters on k-space, parallel imaging, cardiac MRI, and MR spectroscopy.After a partial flip angle, longitudinal recovery will no longer be small after a short TR (because partial flip retains a portion of initial longitudinal magnetization). However, a 180 RF refocusing pulse would be counterproductive. Figure 20-6.
