In 1971 Dr. Paul C. Lauterbur pioneered spatial information encoding principles that made image formation possible by using magnetic resonance signals. Now Lauterbur, "father of the MRI", and Dr. Zhi-Pei Liang have co-authored the first engineering textbook on magnetic resonance imaging. This long-awaited, definitive text will help undergraduate and graduate students of biomedical engineering, biomedical imaging scientists, radiologists, and electrical engineers gain an in-depth understanding of MRI principles. <p> The authors use a signal processing approach to describe the fundamentals of magnetic resonance imaging. You will find a clear and rigorous discussion of these carefully selected essential topics: <ul> <li> Mathematical fundamentals <li> Signal generation and detection principles <li> Signal characteristics <li> Signal localization principles <li> Image reconstruction techniques <li> Image contrast mechanisms <li> Image resolution, noise, and artifacts <li> Fast-scan imaging<li>Constrained reconstruction </ul> Complete with a comprehensive set of examples and homework problems, <i>Principles of Magnetic Resonance Imaging</i> is the must-read book to improve your knowledge of this revolutionary technique.
