Event Details:


MRI: Clinical Updates and Practical Physics is a 4-day course for practicing Radiologists and Magnetic Resonance technologists. The course will focus on new strategies to correctly interpret common MRI exams, recognize image quality issues, and execute strategies to correct them. In addition, this course will review the underlying principles of MR physics and image protocol decisions with colleagues to improve team efficiency.

Registration fees includes course materials, certificate of participation, welcome reception, daily breakfast and lunch on Wednesday through Friday.

At the conclusion of this activity, learners should be able to:

  • Discuss the meaning of core MRI system component specifications and how they impact sequence parameters. Recognize how to set rationally acceleration factors for various acquisitions.
  • Differentiate the parts of pulse sequences and their relationships to image contrasts, SNR, and scan time. Describe the basic concepts of compressed sensing and dynamic MRI.
  • Interpret the meaning of the resulting images of a diffuse liver disease MRI.
  • Recall strategies for improving diffusion weighted image quality and MR elastography images.
  • Recall strategies for obtaining optimal fat suppression. Refresh common artifacts and execute strategies to correct them.
