Most clinical MRI is performed using slightly variations of standard technology. However, in the research domain, many groups are now pushing the limits of what MRI technology can do, identifying new realms that it can be applied to, and violating the classic dogmas to enable wholly new imaging capabilities. In this course, we will explore some of these MRI technology extremes, investigate their technical foundations, and identify what potential impact they could have on clinical practice.
Physicists and Engineers who are interested in pushing the limits of MRI technology and exploring non-traditional uses of the latter.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Identify and describe MRI techniques that employ non-traditional hardware setups (e.g., magnets, gradients);
-Identify and describe MRI techniques that employ non-traditional data acquisition strategies (e.g., RF, sampling); and
-Identify and describe MRI techniques that employ non-traditional data processing strategies (e.g., artifact-to-information, assisted diagnosis).
