Highly Commended at the British Medical Association Book Awards 2016
MRI at a Glance 3rd edition PDF encapsulates essential MRI physics knowledge. Illustrated in full colour throughout, its concise text explains complex information, to provide the perfect revision aid. It includes topics ranging from magnetism to safety, K space to pulse sequences, and image contrast to artefacts.
This third edition has been fully updated, with revised diagrams and new pedagogy, including 55 key points, tables, scan tips, equations, and learning points. There is also an expanded glossary and new appendices on optimizing image quality, parameters and trade-offs.
A companion website is also available at www.ataglanceseries.com/mri featuring animations, interactive multiple choice questions, and scan tips to improve your own MRI technique.
MRI at a Glance 3rd edition pdf is ideal for student radiographers and MRI technologists, especially those undertaking the American Registry of Radiation Technologist (ARRT) MRI examination, as well as other health professionals involved in MRI.

Catherine Westbrook, Senior Lecturer and Course Leader, Faculty of Medical Science, Anglia Ruskin University, UK.
Catherine has been involved in MRI education for nearly 25 years. She qualified as a Diagnostic Radiographer in 1981 and specialised in MRI in 1989. She became involved in MRI education soon after, teaching MRI courses and presenting at international conferences since 1992. Catherine has also written some of the leading books in the field.
As one of the first people in the world to obtain a Masters degree in MRI, Catherine began working at Anglia Ruskin University supporting the MSc MRI course in 1996. She has been the course leader since 2004. She also has significant expertise in delivering distance learning and supporting distance learners.

Great book for review of things we don’t think about daily as MRI technologists. Love that it was one page per topic and not overdone.
Perfect, to the point. Good for technologists who want to refresh their MRI physics.
Amazing book. Excellent for beginners getting to know straight-to-the-point facts.Made me look at MRI from a whole different perspective.
I liked this book very much. It is really well explained and I have understood a loot of things that weren’t so clear to me before.
