The book gives a comprehensive survey of the analytical treatment of MRI physics and engineering. It aims to bring the reader to a position to cope with the problems that arise when applying MRI to medical problems or when (sub)systems or sequences for new applications are designed. Special attention is paid to the treatment of intrinsic artefacts of the different sequences, which can be described in a mathematically uniform way for the different scan methods. The book contains many images, especially showing specific properties of the different scan methods. The methods discussed include RARE, GRACE, EPI, and Spiral Scan. The book is a textbook aimed at helping the reader reach the required level for independent research or development in the field of MRI applications or system design.
