MRI Bioeffects, Safety, and Patient Management: 2nd Edition PDF version.
MRI Bioeffects, Safety, and Patient Management: 2nd Edition (PDF version) is a comprehensive, authoritative textbook on the health and safety aspects of MRI technology that contains contributions from more than fifty internationally respected experts in the field. This textbook includes both theoretical and practical information, serving as a definitive and indispensable information resource for radiologists, MRI technologists and radiographers, MRI physicists, scientists, biomedical engineers, MRI facility managers, and others.
The text begins with three separate chapters on the important topic of MRI physics and then proceeds with descriptions of the bioeffects of static, time-varying gradient, and radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, as well as the risks associated with acoustic noise. The content then discusses the use of MRI during pregnancy, the procedures used to screen patients and other individuals prior to performing MRI exams, and the management of patients with claustrophobia, anxiety, or emotional distress. Other chapters provide vital and essential information for MRI contrast agents, the use of ferromagnetic detection systems, the performance of physiological monitoring in the MRI setting, and the unique safety requirements for interventional MRI facilities.
Detailed descriptions are provided on the test methodology utilized to evaluate and characterize MRI-related issues for implants and devices. Additionally, the latest recommendations on the proper management of patients with implants and complex electronically-activated devices, such as cardiac pacemakers and neuromodulation systems, are included. MRI safety policies and procedures are provided for hospitals and medical centers, outpatient facilities, children’s hospitals, and research facilities. Importantly, up-to-date MRI standards and guidelines are presented for the United States, Europe, Canada, and Australia. This is the definitive textbook on the important topic of MRI safety.
