Theoretical and Practical Training in MRI (An Intermediate Course on MR Physics for Technologists and Radiologists)

 

 

 

 

 COURSE TITLE

  • Theoretical and Practical Training in MRI

An Intermediate Course on MR Physics for Technologists and Radiologists

  • A Short-term course.

 

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

 

 

 

 

  • In this course, fundamentals of basic contrast mechanisms and image formation are explained, followed by fast Fourier imaging techniques and related artifacts (used in daily MR clinic).
  • After completion of this 4-day intensive training program, the attendees would be able to:
    • Understand basics of signal detection, contrast generation and image formation in MRI,
    • Understand available state-of-the-art fast Fourier imaging techniques, their artifacts and associated remedies for daily use of MRI in clinics,
    • Understand imaging artifacts, and remedies to reduce them in MRI,
    • Understand non-Fourier acquisitions as fast and robust imaging techniques in MRI, and
    • Understand practical pulse sequences and their applications in clinics.
  • Course Outline:
    • Introduction to the course and the topics
    • Quick overview of signal formation, contrast mechanisms and image formation in MRI
    • Quick overview of Spin-Echo and Gradient-Echo imaging
    • Image optimization
    • Fast Fourier imaging techniques I
    • Artifacts in MRI; a case-based approach
    • Artifacts in MRI; clinical pitfalls and remedies
    • Fast Fourier imaging techniques II
    • Clinical applications of head & neck imaging in MRI
    • Clinical applications of MSK (including extremities) imaging in MRI
    • Clinical applications of abdomen and thorax imaging in MRI
