This primer provides a concise, methodological approach to abdominal MR imaging techniques. It offers the user an invaluable pictorial and textual guide to typical features of the most commonly seen entities encountered by the clinician. The authors place an emphasis on a pattern recognition approach, thereby focusing on clinical-pathologic correlation (i.e., the morphological characteristics and pathologic criteria necessary to diagnose disease), as opposed to disease epidemiology.
