Since the first edition was published in 1993, MRI in Practice has become the standard text for radiographers, technologists, radiology residents, radiologists and even sales representatives on the subject of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This text is essential reading on undergraduate and postgraduate MRI courses. Furthermore MRI in Practice has come to be known as the number one reference book and study guide in the areas of MR instrumentation, principles, pulse sequences, image acquisition, and imaging parameters for the advanced level examination for MRI offered by the American Registry for Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) in the USA. The book explains in clear terms the theory that underpins magnetic resonance so that the capabilities and operation of MRI systems can be fully appreciated and maximised. This fourth edition captures recent advances, and coverage includes: parallel imaging techniques and new sequences such as balanced gradient echo. Building on the success of the first three editions, the fourth edition has been fully revised and updated. The book now comes with a companion website at which hosts animated versions of a selection of illustrations in the book that are used on the MRI in Practice Course. These animations and accompanying text are aimed at helping the reader’s comprehension of some of the more difficult concepts. The website also hosts over 200 interactive self-assessment exercises to help the reader test their understanding. MRI in Practice features: Full color illustrations Logical presentation of the theory and applications of MRI A new page design A companion website at featuring interactive multiple choice questions, short answer questions PLUS animations of more complex concepts from the book For more information on the MRI in Practice Course and other learning resources by Westbrook and Talbot, please visit

For Introductory Calculus-based Physics Courses. Putting physics first Based on his storied research and teaching, Eric Mazur’s Principles & Practice of Physics builds an understanding of physics that is both thorough and accessible. Unique organization and pedagogy allow students to develop a true conceptual understanding of physics alongside the quantitative skills needed in the course. New learning architecture: The book is structured to help students learn physics in an organized way that encourages comprehension and reduces distraction. Physics on a contemporary foundation: Traditional texts delay the introduction of ideas that we now see as unifying and foundational. This text builds physics on those unifying foundations, helping students to develop an understanding that is stronger, deeper, and fundamentally simpler. Research-based instruction: This text uses a range of research-based instructional techniques to teach physics in the most effective manner possible. The result is a groundbreaking book that puts physics first, thereby making it more accessible to students and easier for instructors to teach. MasteringPhysics® works with the text to create a learning program that enables students to learn both in and out of the classroom. This program provides a better teaching and learning experience for you and your students. Here’s how: Build an integrated, conceptual understanding of physics: Help students gain a deeper understanding of the unified laws that govern our physical world through the innovative chapter structure and pioneering table of contents. Encourage informed problem solving: The separate Practice Volume empowers students to reason more effectively and better solve problems. Personalize learning with MasteringPhysics: MasteringPhysics provides students with engaging experiences that coach them through physics with specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a wide variety of educationally effective content. MasteringPhysics is not included. Students, if MasteringPhysics is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MasteringPhysics is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

Civil Engineer's Reference Book, Fourth Edition provides civil engineers with reports on design and construction practices in the UK and overseas. It gives a concise presentation of theory and practice in the many branches of a civil engineer's profession and it enables them to study a subject in greater depth. The book discusses some improvements in earlier practices, for example in surveying, geotechnics, water management, project management, underwater working, and the control and use of materials. Other changes covered are from the evolving needs of clients for almost all forms of construction, maintenance and repair. Another major change is the introduction of new national and Euro-codes based on limit state design, covering most aspects of structural engineering. The fourth edition incorporates these advances and, at the same time, gives greater prominence to the special problems relating to work overseas, with differing client requirements and climatic conditions. Chapters 1 to 10 provide engineers, at all levels of development, with 'lecture notes' on the basic theories of civil engineering. Chapters 11 to 44 cover the practice of design and construction in many of the fields of civil engineering. Civil engineers, architects, lawyers, mechanical engineers, insurers, clients, and students of civil engineering will find benefit in the use of this text.
