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.

Course description
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.
