Breast MRI has emerged as a valuable adjunct to the conventional imaging modalities in the detection
of primary and recurrent breast cancer. Yet, most radiologists who rely on MRI do not have knowledge
of the fundamentals so essential to achieving and maintaining high image quality.
With a focus on the basic imaging principles of breast MRI rather than on mathematical equations, this
book takes a practical approach to imaging protocols that helps radiologists increase their diagnostic
effectiveness. The text walks the reader through the basics of MRI, making it especially accessible to
beginners. From a detailed outline of equipment prerequisites for obtaining high quality breast MRI to
instructions on how to optimize image quality, expanded discussions on how to obtain optimized
dynamic information, and explanations of good and bad imaging techniques, the book covers the topics
that are most relevant to performing breast MRI.
