About the Author
James L. Carlyle
Leaha Ann Boyd
The author offers special thanks to Leaha Boyd, without whose support Boyd’s Comprehensive Guide to MRI would not be possible. In addition to providing support, encouragement, and enthusiasm for this book, she also endured countless hours in the scanner to provide many of the positioning and anatomy images in this volume.
Born and raised near Seattle, Washington, Leaha’s radiology career started in 1992 when she graduated from Tacoma Community College with an associate’s degree in Radiologic Arts. She then moved to Flagstaff, Arizona, and worked in trauma X-ray, where she met her husband, Doug. After marrying Doug and moving to Phoenix, she continued working as an X-ray tech until cross-training in CT. She enjoys the fast pace and diversity of cases that CT provides and has spent the last 10 years at the Phoenix VA Hospital.
In addition to the reviewers acknowledged separately, the author thanks the following individuals for their contributions and guidance:
James F. Coffin, ARMRIT
Michelle Foreso, ARRT, BS
Benjamin Timpauer, ARMRIT
