This book offers concise descriptions of cross-sectional imaging studies of the abdomen and pelvis, supplemented with over 1100 high-quality images and discussion of state-of-the-art techniques. It is based on the most common clinical cases encountered in daily practice and uses an algorithmic approach to help radiologists arrive first at a working differential diagnosis and then reach an accurate diagnosis based on imaging features, which incorporate clinical, laboratory, and other underlying contexts. The book is organized by anatomical organ of origin and each chapter provides a brief anatomical background of the organ under review; explores various cross-sectional imaging techniques and common pathologies; and presents practical algorithms based on frequently encountered imaging features. Special emphasis is placed on the role of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In addition to algorithmic coverage of many pathological entities in various abdominopelvic organs, unique topics are also examined, such as imaging of organ transplant (including kidney, liver and pancreas), evaluation of perianal fistula, and assessment of rectal carcinoma and prostate carcinoma by MRI. Cross-Sectional Imaging of the Abdomen and Pelvis: A Practical Algorithmic Approach is a unique and practical resource for radiologists, fellows, and residents.

Practical Body MRI: Protocols, Applications and Image Interpretation demystifies MRI examinations of the abdomen and pelvis, giving the essential knowledge required by radiologists in order to develop and select appropriate protocols, assess scan quality and interpret imaging studies. Each chapter describes why each sequence is performed, what to look for, and how the important findings from each sequence lead to a unique diagnosis. Numerous protocols are included, from the more common, such as liver and renal MRI, to more tailored examinations such as rectal and placental MRI. All protocols are richly illustrated with images of body MR pathology. A separate chapter discusses MRA/MRV and an introductory chapter gives a brief, practical introduction to MRI physics and receiver coils. The authors' expertise and practical, concise explanations of both protocols and image interpretation makes this an essential resource for residents, fellows and experienced radiologists using body MRI for the first time.

In 15 years MRI has evolved into an essential modality, developing from being a preferred neuroimaging method to becoming a whole-body, comprehensive imaging approach. For this, various coils, pulse sequences, and contrast media have been developed. The complexity of the factors to consider often represents an obstacle not only to beginners but also to more experienced technicians and physicians. Since routine diagnostic questions represent more than 90% of clinical examinations, the intention of the editors and authors was to provide an understandable book for this purpose. The book gives practical information about performing effective and efficient MR examinations in daily practice. Solving clinical questions with new sequences should no longer be difficult for beginners in the field.

The second edition of this very successful book provides a practical approach to liver MRI, with coverage of the most up-to-date MR imaging sequences, normal and variant anatomy and diverse pathologic conditions. It features computer-generated drawings relating clinical concepts to the MRI findings, 2D and 3D reconstructions, systematic (differential) diagnostic information and descriptions of patient management options. MRI findings are correlated to ultrasound, computed tomography, nuclear medicine exams, laboratory findings and histopathology when appropriate. New information is presented on a wide range of topics and more than 50 extra figure pages are included. This book will greatly benefit all professionals interested and involved in imaging, diagnosis and treatment of focal and diffuse liver lesions, including radiologists, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, surgeons, pathologists, MR physicists, radiology and other residents, MR technologists and medical students.p>

While MRI has proved itself to be an excellent diagnostic noninvasive modality for imaging of the brain, medulla, and musculoskeletal system due to its high intrinsic con trast resolution and tissue characterisation potential based on the judicious application of specific sequences, this has not been the case in the abdomen and pelvis. The reasons are the long exposure time and the lower spatial resolution, inherent to MRI. However, during recent years considerable process has been achieved in MRI of the abdominal and pelvic organs due to the development of new and more rapid imaging sequences and the routine clinical application of specific magnetic resonance contrast media. Consequently for some anatomical areas such as the female genital organs and the biliary system MRI is already the best performing morphological diagnostic modality. However, the question arises as to wether MRI, given its performance capabilities, should not also be considered a primary diagnostic modality for the study of parenchymal organs like the liver, spleen, and pancreas, and not merely as a complen tary modality to solve residual problems after ultrasonography and computed tomog raphy have been performed. Although the future role of MRI in respect of the gas trointestinal tube itself is still somewhat unclear, some possibilities for routine clinical use are becoming visible even in this abdominal field.

Using state-of-the-art MRI images, this book illustrates radiological findings in the abdomen and pelvis in a case presentation format. Cases presented in this book include common and uncommon diseases of nearly every organ system of the abdomen and pelvis. Each case succinctly discusses the relevant imaging findings, differential diagnosis, and potential imaging and diagnostic pitfalls. Many cases also include discussion of MRI technique, with illustration of some common artifacts. For radiology residents and fellows, this book will be a valuable study tool and reference; fourth-year residents should find this book especially helpful when studying for oral boards. Practicing radiologists should find this a useful quick review of state-of-the-art body MRI.
