Weekday Course

ORGANIZERS: Greig Scott, Edward DiBella, Hua Guo

Tuesday, 14 May 2019
  13:30 - 15:30

Skill Level: Basic to Advanced

Session Number: TU-06

From pulse programming theory to the real world, which includes RF amplifier, eddy currents, gradient amplifier, and B0 and B1 hardware/measurement/correction. 
Hands-on training and open-source tools with free software simulator to model the non-linearities and imperfections of MRI hardware components.

Target Audience
Basic to advanced.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe the ideal and non-ideal engineering components of an MRI system;
- Explain the idea and practice of field probes to characterize and calibrate for MRI imperfections; and
- Produce simple demonstrations using freely available MRI simulation software that models many of the scanner imperfections.
