Of all the books and materials I've read on MRI, Mr. Faulkner's small book is the best written on understanding the key components to MRI. It is invaluable to someone who desires to understand the basic physics and is the single best foundation for a technologist to build on. It also seemed to dovetail with ARRT's perspective in my Board Exam. If a tech had only one book to reference as he/she trains clinically, this would be it, in my opinion. I also attended Mr. Faulkner's MRI class in Chattanooga, TN where he gives monthly seminar and a week's review and it is the best 5 day seminar on MRI possible. If you read this book first and prepare questions for the seminar, you are 99% likely to come away with a highly expert understanding. If you have been out of MRI for a long time and need to review to get back up to speed, this book is the answer to that need. He wrote it for the ages. The basic physics will always apply as the technology advances. It is a tribute to love and understanding of MRI. Absolute Kudos.
Easy to read and understand as far as physics go. Confusing typo's in several spots. There was author contact info and I did contact the author to clarify what I felt was a typo that stumped me. He immediately (within hours) contacted me and was very nice, polite and helpful. I also took a course in Las Vegas from this author. Made a very dry subject as interesting as anyone could possibly make it. I passed my MRI exam with a 90%. Thank you Mr. Faulkner.
an excellent tool to use to revise for the MRI boards. However you will still need other text books as well but this one focuses on the physics that will almost surely come on the exam paper.
Great study guide. Written in "note" style with bulleted notes. Small size that easily fits into pocket for studing anywhere. Written by "The Guru of MRI." Worth the $
Beleive me this is THE best little MRI review book I have ever seen so far. It is very easy to undersand and very concise. IT covers everything in an easy to understand way. I really helped me.
A must have book for the MRI technologist that is new or is seasoned. Written so you understand it, a must have for the registry.
Faulkner is easy to follow and understand. This book is just the right size to carry around with you to use as a reference,also.
