Sari Intermediate MRI Course

In this 3-day course, fundamentals of MR physics, imaging techniques and pulse sequences are explained, beginning with the basic concepts of signal and contrast formation, as well as equipment and hardware necessary to interpret clinical images.

Through MRI physics education in the intermediate level, the participants will be able to:

  • Know and appreciate the importance of the pulse sequence optimization and artifact reduction approaches for subject-specific application,
  • Understand different imaging methods like Parallel Imaging, Echo-Planar, Imaging, etc.
  • Recognize the suitable applications of pulse sequences for different scenarios
  • An overview on several k-space filling approaches
  • Echo-train imaging
  • Non-Fourier-Based Techniques
  • Artifact and Motion Correction
  • Spin- and Gradient-Echo Imaging
  • Water- and Fat-Suppression Methods
  • Parallel and Echo-Planar Imaging
  • Clinical Applications: Head, Neck, CNS, Abdomen and Pelvis
  • Technologists and Radiographers (Students and Graduates)
