MRI: Normal Variants and Pitfalls presents over 1,800 images of normal anatomic variants, artifacts, and other features that mimic pathology on MRI scans.

Organized by anatomic region, the book covers the gamut of neuroradiology, breast imaging, vascular, cross-sectional, and musculoskeletal radiology. Each chapter shows examples of normal anatomy, variations, common incidental or benign conditions, and imaging features that may mimic other disease processes. Concise figure legends facilitate rapid identification of imaging characteristics. Examples of common MRI artifacts are included, with brief explanations from physicists in language understandable to radiologists.

This book will reduce the rate of diagnostic errors by helping radiologists distinguish pathology from MRI appearances that may simulate disease.
