Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has become an established imaging modality with an expanding range of clinical indications. While in the past the CMR imaging was available in only a few specialist centres, the use of CMR is now becoming much more widespread. All clinicians working in Cardiology or Imaging should therefore have a general understanding of the diagnostic information that can be obtained from CMR, the indications for referral as well as contraindications and limitations of the technique. For cardiologists and radiologists in particular, CMR will become a routine diagnostic tool and training curricula in Cardiology or Radiology will require a compulsory period of training in CMR. This book is conceived as a compact introductory text to CMR and as a practical guide for daily use.

Cardiovascular MR Manual

The book begins with a detailed didactic overview of the physics of magnetic resonance imaging – a subject that many clinicians find difficult to understand, but one that is essential for the appropriate use of this technology, as it determines image quality and most appropriate use. We have taken a very practical approach to explaining MRI physics, cross-referencing consistently to the subsequent clinical chapters and showing how an understanding of basic
