MRI Bioeffects, Safety, and Patient Management  is a comprehensive, authoritative textbook on the health and safety concerns of MRI technology that contains contributions from more than forty internationally respected experts in the field. This textbook includes both theoretical and practical information and serves as the definitive resource for radiologists and other physicians, MRI technologists, physicists, scientists, MRI facility managers, and others.

The text begins with a discussion of basic MRI physics and then proceeds to a description of the bioeffects of static, gradient, and radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as well as the risks associated with acoustic noise. It then discusses the use of MRI during pregnancy, the design of an MRI facility to support safety, the procedures to screen patients and other individuals, and the management of patients with claustrophobia, anxiety, or emotional distress. Other chapters cover the safety of MRI contrast agents, the use of ferromagnetic detection systems, techniques for physiological monitoring, the unique safety needs of interventional MRI centers, and the administration of sedation and anesthesia during MRI.

Detailed descriptions covering the proper management of patients with metallic implants and complex electronically activated devices, such as cardiac pacemakers and neuromodulation systems, are included. MRI safety policies and procedures are presented for hospitals/medical centers, outpatient facilities, children’s hospitals, and research facilities. Finally, MRI standards and guidelines are provided for the United States, Europe, Canada, and Australia.
