WEEKEND EDUCATIONAL COURSE
Clinical MRI: From Physical Principles to Practical Protocols
Organizers: P. Ellen Grant M.D. and Andrew J Kiruluta Ph.D.
Skill Level: Basic
Saturday, 3 May 2008
This one-day course will begin with a basic overview of MR physics. Over the course of the day, MDs will use physiological principles and case examples to illustrate the impact of protocol choices in real world settings. Physics speakers will build on these examples by explaining the underlying principles of MR physics that explain the protocol choices. The presentation will be an integrated series of lectures, to illustrate protocol choices and trouble shooting tips.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
This course is designed for clinicians, clinical trainees, and technologists who are interested in consolidating their fundamental understanding of MR physical principles, as well as issues relating to protocol optimization, multi channel coils and high fields. This course is aimed at those with a basic understanding of MRI but who are not yet at an advanced level.
