MRI Techniques (Hardcover)

By (author): Vincent Perrin

The rapid developments in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) over the past 20 years have affirmed its supremacy over most other means of non-invasive exploration of the human body. This progress has had other consequences for imaging physicists: having knowledge about only one of the sides of MRI is nowadays no longer enough to develop new sequences or even to learn more about those that already exist. It is necessary to have a clear and precise view of all the fields explored today by this imaging technique, such as rapid imaging, flows, diffusion, perfusion or even functional MRI.
This book aims to allow readers with the basics of physics and mathematics within the field MRI to easily immerse themselves in techniques that are not familiar to them. Pragmatic in approach, moving between the physics underlying the techniques being studied and the clinical examination of images, it will also be of interest to radiologists looking to define protocols or make better use of the images obtained.


1. Flow.
2. Diffusion.
3. Perfusion.
4. Functional MRI.

About the Authors

Vincent Perrin is a specialist teacher in the fields of physics and chemistry.

PHARMA DRUGSThis small book embodies a series of drug classifications along with essential prescribing information, such as doses (including paediatric doses wherever relevant), frequency and route(s) of administration as well as a limited number of leading brand names for each available drug. Drug classifications are highly valuable for pharmacology students as well as for prescribing doctors, because each drug is recognized by the class/subclass to which it belongs, e.g. labelling atenolol as a cardioselective beta-adrenergic blocker summarizes its actions, uses, etc. Classifications devised in this book are based on a variety of criteria, such as primary action, mechanism of action, chemical nature and clinical use, etc. depending on what is relevant/therapeutically meaningful for a particular class of drugs. The classifications are presented in the form of eye-catching charts which create pictorial images and help memorizing. All classifications have been meticulously updated to include newer drugs/classes of drugs. The book is meant to be an aid to remembering drug names and quickly allocating them to their appropriate pharmacological/therapeutic class/subclass, as well as to serve as a ready reckoner for prescribing.
