ISMRM 25th Annual Meeting & Exhibition • 22-27 April 2017 • Honolulu, HI, USA
Educational Session: MR Physics & Techniques for Clinicians
ORGANIZERS: Marcus T. Alley, Ph.D. & Bernd Jung, Ph.D.
Wednesday, 26 April 2017
Skill Level: Basic to Intermediate
Slack Channel: #e_crosscutting
Session Number: W02
This two-hour course will be a basic and comprehensive review of MRI physics and techniques. The presentations will be non-mathematical and suitable for clinicians and physicists new to the field. The course will cover advanced MRI techniques including ultra-fast imaging, parallel imaging and an overview of the types of artifacts that appear in MR imaging.
This course is primarily designed for the clinician who will benefit from an understanding of the "how’s and why’s" of MR imaging. While it requires no prior experience with MR, those with some familiarity and experience will also benefit. Those interested may include: radiologists and clinicians relatively new to MR imaging (including residents and fellows), experienced radiologists and clinicians wanting a refresher course in MR physics, and physicists and engineers wanting an introduction to the field.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Describe the principles of perfusion imaging and diffusion weighted imaging;
-Describe the principles and applications of parallel imaging for accelerated MR imaging; and
-Review techniques and applications for MR angiography.
