About this course

Are you using or planning to use MRI in your practice? Do you want to get more confident in acquiring the best images possible? Do you want to make sense of the use of different sequences to optimise your studies?

This course is designed to help you to understand MRI technology and how it can best be utilised for your patients. Besides covering the basic physical principles, artefacts and acquisition protocols, participants will learn a basic systematic approach to read MR images and recognise lesions.

For each area, the cross-sectional anatomy and normal variations will be reviewed. A variety of cases will be used for individual review and case discussion.

Why do this course? 
At the end of the course you will be more confident in acquiring MRI images and developing your own structured approach for use of different sequences as well as gaining onfidence in recognising common and not so common lesions.
