Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is among the most important medical imaging techniques available today. There is an installed base of approximately 15, 000 MRI scanners worldwide. Each of these scanners is capable of running many different qpulse sequencesq, which are governed by physics and engineering principles, and implemented by software programs that control the MRI hardware. To utilize an MRI scanner to the fullest extent, a conceptual understanding of its pulse sequences is crucial. This book offers a complete guide that can help the scientists, engineers, clinicians, and technologists in the field of MRI understand and better employ their scanner. AmExplains pulse sequences, their components, and the associated image reconstruction methods commonly used in MRI AmProvides self-contained sections for individual techniques AmCan be used as a quick reference guide or as a resource for deeper study AmIncludes both non-mathematical and mathematical descriptions AmContains numerous figures, tables, references, and worked example problemsLane swapping (a) sprinter il B - sprinter / sprinter || A echo sprinter || B a-- sprinter 1 A During prephasing gradient B sprinter il echo During readout gradient FIGURE 8.5 A diagram showing the effect of prephasing (a) and readout gradientsanbsp;...
