This manual is a comprehensive highly visual reference to the planning and positioning of patients and coils in MR imaging. High quality imaging specific to patient pathology is encouraged through the focus on 'considerations' specific to coil and patient placement and imaging plane selection.
Over 200 MR images
Formulaic internal design assist use as clinical manual to MRI planning
Evidence base provided where appropriate (cranial neurology)
Image selection - assist learning principles that underpin good positioning and anatomical coverage
Explores positioning of patient and coils specific to individual treatment requirements
Evolve website - image collection (over 200 MR images) and additional case studies
