27th ISMRM Annual Meeting • 11-16 May 2019 • Montréal, QC, Canada
MR Physics & Techniques for Clinicians (4)
MR Physics & Techniques for Clinicians
ORGANIZERS: Bernd Jung, Marcus Alley, Dong-Hyun Kim
Thursday, 16 May 2019
Skill Level: Basic to Intermediate
Session Number: TH-01
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 the basic principles of MR physics (signal generation, encoding, and relaxation) and image quality.
This course is primarily designed for the clinician who will benefit from an understanding of the "hows" and "whys" 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.
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Define and describe the fundamental principles of MR imaging including the definition of spin magnetization;
- Explain the Larmor relationship, relaxation phenomena, and the process of using the spin magnetization to produce an image; and
- Describe how changing acquisition parameters impacts on the image quality and understand the parameter relationships.
