3T MR Imaging, An Issue of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Clinics (The Clinics: Radiology)
Author: Elmar Merkle
Release Date: August 01, 2007
It is currently unclear whether body MR imaging at 3T is superior compared to standard 1.5T MR imaging. This is an important issue for radiologists because the 3T MR systems are considerably more expensive than the 1.5T MR systems, yet the reimbursement for the studies is identical. This up-to-date new issue, Guest Edited by Elmar Merkle, will help radiologists make an educated decision whether it is currently worth investing in a more expensive 3T MR system, or settling for a proven and less expensive 1.5T MR system. General topics such as MR Physics are discussed, as well as articles on more specific types of MR Imaging, such as Breast, Cardiac, and Liver. This must-read issue will help to guide radiologists through the constantly shifting technological advances in 3t MR Imaging.
