Describes concepts and clarification of fine points of k-space. Controlled parameters and how change affects image quality. MRI artifacts in respect to patient and technology. Mechanisms to minimize or eliminate recognized artifacts. Quality assurance phantoms and tests used to evaluate image characteristics for an effective QC program.
