Weekend Course

ORGANIZERS: Fernando Boada, Douglas Noll, Neville Gai

Sunday, 12 May 2019
  08:00 - 11:30 Moderators:  Xiaohong Joe Zhou, Suchandrima Banerjee

Skill Level: Basic to Advanced

Session Number: WE-14

This course describes the basic principles for the generation of the MRI signal/contrasts and their corresponding spatial encoding together with the broad categories grouping the most important and heavily used pulse sequences.

Target Audience
MRI scientists interested in understanding and implementing MRI pulse sequences and clinicians seeking to understand the basic features and properties of common MRI pulse sequences.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Explain the fundamental concepts related to the generation and spatial encoding of the MRI signal; and
- Describe the differences between the magnetization preparation and signal acquisition components of a pulse sequence.
