    Product description:
    This second edition of Gary Liney’s MRI from A-Z, much expanded from the first edition, is both a reflection of and an apt companion for the dramatic growth of the field of MRI. The MRI-trainee to the most seasoned practitioner in MRI will find this A-Z of the field, with 1,300 entries and 100 illustrations, an indispensable reference tool. Providing the reader with concise, clear and eloquent definitions of MRI terminology, this book is both highly practical and a pleasure to read.

    Review:
    Praise for the 1st edition: "This slim paperback...is written almost in note form with concise, sharp, sentences that pack in a lot of information. It deals with all the MRI terms and common phrases that are heard in and around an MRI practice in alphabetical order. [It is] a handy quick reference guide, a good time-filler while you idle by the control desk waiting for that sequence to finish. Regardless of how long you have worked with MRI, this book will hold gems that you have long since forgotten you once knew, many you have not even wondered about, and others that, although familiar, have become vague...Between the obvious and the obscure there are several entries that will be useful to radiologists, including some nice explanations of common MRI artefacts. There are clear diagrams illustrating common sequences, magnet and coil design, and concepts such as “relaxation”. Usefully this book includes an explanation of all those hideous acronyms so beloved by industry and by those “in the know”. If you thought DIET and TONE were the obsessions of fashion models or have not yet made SENSE of DESSA or GRAPPA, it’s all explained here." A. Gillams, in Clinical Radiology (2005) 60, 1219–1220 "Gary Liney, a renowned MRI physicist is the author of this short, yet comprehensive guide... All terms are explained in short and easily understandable paragraphs. The text is written in a clear and concise form, making it even for the inexperienced reader easy, to understand the full range of physical terms used in MR imaging...The author manages very well to explain this rather complicated field in an easily digestible form, without sacrificing any necessary information. Thus, this pocket-sized book is a truly valuable companion to answer all technical questions regarding MR imaging. In summary, I can fully recommend ‘MRI from A to Z’ by Gary Liney, to any physician dealing with MRI in their daily clinical routine" B. Halpern, in European Journal of Radiology (2005), 56, 270-271
