Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most technically dependent imaging technique in radiology. To perform and interpret MRI studies correctly, an understanding of the basic underlying principles is essential. Understanding Magnetic Resonance Imaging explains the pulse sequences, imaging options, and coils used to produce MR images, providing a strong foundation for performing and interpreting imaging studies. The text is complemented by more than 100 figures and 25 photomicrographs illustrating the techniques discussed. Radiology residents, MR technologists, and radiologists should not be without Understanding Magnetic Resonance Imaging-the only single resource that explains all technical aspects of MRI, including recent advances, and presents all imaging options.

Author: Richard R. Ernst
Written by one of the world's leading NMR research teams, this monograph presents the most comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy available. In the course of the last two decades, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has undergone a dramatic renaissance, and the authors provide a unified review of the entire field, covering basic principles and techniques for the study of solutions and solids, with emphasis placed on methods of one- and two-dimensional spectroscopy. The material is presented in an intuitive manner, with many illustrations and a rigorous mathematical framework that should satisfy a wide audience.

Author: Hans-Jorgen Smith
A sound and simple description of NMR and the fundamentals of image modification and enhancement. Radiologists will need the math; those ordering the images may know much less than can be learned here. We cannot identify the readers wanting this level of understanding. Acidic paper.

Brand: Brand: World Scientific Pub Co Inc
This book describes methods for calculating magnetic resonance spectra which are observed in the presence of random processes. The emphasis is on the stochastic Liouville equation (SLE), developed mainly by Kubo and applied to magnetic resonance mostly by J H Freed and his co-workers. Following an introduction to the use of density matrices in magnetic resonance, a unified treatment of Bloch-Redfield relaxation theory and chemical exchange theory is presented. The SLE formalism is then developed and compared to the other relaxation theories. Methods for solving the SLE are explained in detail, and its application to a variety of problems in electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is studied. In addition, experimental aspects relevant to the applications are discussed. Mathematical background material is given in appendices.

Author: Peter G. Morris
Since the first publications on the subject in 1973, NMR imaging has grown rapidly and has evolved a wide variety of imaging techniques and systems. This book gives the reader a sound physical understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of the field. Morris explains the basic theory and describes the imaging systems most frequently encountered, including the two- and three-dimensional methods used in commercial systems. Instrumentation and magnet choice and design are fully discussed, and there is an extensive chapter on applications. For medical physicists, NMR imaging researchers, radiologists, clinicians, and scientists and engineers involved in NMR imaging development.
|Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Relaxation
Lowest new price: $65.47
Lowest used price: $49.99
List price: $75.99
Author: Brian Cowan
This book provides an introduction to the general principles of nuclear magnetic resonance and relaxation, concentrating on simple models and their application. It includes an introduction to the ideas and applications of nuclear magnetic resonance and emphasizes the concepts of relaxation and the time domain. Some relatively advanced topics are treated, but the approach is graduated and all points of potential difficulty are carefully explained. An introductory classical discussion of relaxation is followed by a quantum-mechanical treatment. A selection of case studies is considered in depth, providing applications of the ideas developed in the text. There are a number of appendixes, including one on random functions. This treatment of one of the most important experimental techniques in modern science will be of great value to final-year undergraduates, graduate students and researchers using nuclear magnetic resonance, particularly physicists, and especially those involved in the study of condensed matter physics.

List price: $72.95
This volume, as does Volume 176, provides a general background of modern NMR techniques, with a specific focus on NMR techniques that pertain to proteins and enzymology, and a "snapshot" of the current state-of-the-art in NMR experimental techniques. These books enable the reader to understand a given technique, to evaluate its strengths and limitations, to decide which is the best approach, and, finally, to design an experiment using the chosen technique to solve a problem.
|The Theory of Nuclear Magnetic Relaxation in Liquids
Lowest new price: $182.01
Lowest used price: $83.19
List price: $93.99
Author: James McConnell
This book provides a complete exposition of the theory of nuclear magnetic relaxation caused by the thermal motion of the molecule containing the relaxing nucleus. The author begins by defining the physical quantities encountered in nuclear magnetic resonance studies and surveying pioneering investigations in the field. Nuclear magnetic relaxation by scalar, dipolar, quadrupolar and spin-rotational interactions and by anisotropic chemical shift are then examined in detail. Relaxation rates are expressed in terms of spectral densities, and the values of the spectral densities for various molecular shapes are calculated by random walk or Brownian motion dynamics. The text should be within the grasp of readers who have taken undergraduate courses in electromagnetic theory and in classical and quantum mechanics, although topics in these fields of particular relevance are to be found in appendices. This book will be of value to postgraduate students and research workers using n.m.r. in physics and physical chemistry departments, and by scientists in industrial and medical research.

Author: Michael Mehring
This book presents, for the first time, a unified treatment of the quantum mechanisms of magnetic resonance, including both nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and electron spin resonance (ESR). Magnetic resonance is perhaps the most advanced type of spectroscopy and it is applied in biology, chemistry, physics, material science, and medicine. If applied in conjunction with spectroscopy, the imaging version of magnetic resonance has no counterpart in any type of experimental technique.
The authors present explanations and applications from fundamental to advanced levels. Additionally, they pave the way to successfully simulating magnetic resonance phenomena numerically through an accompanying CD-ROM.
