Dr. NessAiver describes the physics of MR Angiography in a way that’s clear to the radiology student, yet contains information pertinent to the referring physician, who after all, is always necessarily a student of all the radiology modalities. He lays out the mechanism of time-of-flight MR angiography, explains the maximum intensity projection process, and demonstrates the purpose of gadolinium contrast injection with MRA - all in his characteristically fun and friendly way. An easily digestible work on a subject that’s often avoided, this book belongs on every clinician’s bookshelf.

The “Radiology Guidance for Referring Physicians” series of ebooks offers practicing clinicians - both primary care doctors and specialists - a quick and easy reference to over 100 distinct conditions, and how state-of-the-art imaging should be applied within the context of diagnosis, preoperative staging and therapy monitoring.

Authored by board certified radiologists who also teach at the finest medical schools in the U.S. and abroad, each ebook is presented in a clear and concise manner meant to be read in less than an hour, yet contains all the necessary information with which to base a decision on when to order advanced imaging studies for the particular disease process under review.

The “Radiology Guidance for Referring Physicians” series offers doctors the opportunity to access crucial information quickly and economically as cases present in daily practice, without the need to invest in a large, all-encompassing (and expensive) tome.
