After completing the course, the student:
- understands the physical origin of the treated topics in terms of the underlying NMR signal
- understands and can mathematically describe the methods used for spin excitation, spatial encoding and related image reconstruction of the treated topics
- understands and can mathematically describe the methods for generating the contrast weighting of the treated topics;
- can derive optimal scan parameter settings in terms of signal-to-noise-ratio, contrast weighting, scan duration, etc.
- understands the quantification methods of various physiological quantities and processes covered in the treated topics

This advanced MRI course builds on the course Advanced MR Physics 1. The mathematical and physical framework laid down in AMRP 1 is used to focus on MR imaging methods and applications: fast spin- and gradient-echo imaging, spectroscopy, MR angiography, perfusion, diffusion and susceptibility weighted imaging and quantification, scan acceleration techniques.
For the lectures (morning sessions) attendance is highly recommended; the tutorial sessions in the afternoon are mandatory.
