ERASMUS Course on Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Basic MRI Physics – 19th to 23rd September, 2022

Course Objectives:

This one-week module is part of the ERASMUS Course (EMRI) on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) which will provide delegates with a sound understanding of the basic physical principles that underpin MRI.  The course format includes formal lectures accompanied by supervised tutorial Q/A sessions on MR physics – covering everything from basic NMR, T1 and T2, through to advanced neuro, body and cardiovascular applications.  No previous knowledge of MR physics is assumed.  A certificate of attainment will be awarded to successful candidates, and 25 CME credits will be applied for.  An attendee limit of n=25 delegates is proposed in order to optimise focussed learning (including one-to-one tutorial discussions with members of the faculty) and social networking.  Delegates typically attend from a variety of disciplines, including Clinical Radiology, Medical Physics, Radiography and also staff/students from clinical or scientific university departments.

Tea, coffee and lunches will be provided on a daily basis during the course.  Special dietary requirements must be requested in advance; however a vegetarian option will be available each day.  In addition, a welcome drinks reception will be held on Monday 19th September 2022 and a course social dinner will be held on Wednesday 21st September 2022.  All of the described events are fully included within the registration fee.
