Principles of Magnetic Resonance Imaging

After a brief overview of all major medical modalities, including x-ray, CT, MRI, SPECT/PET and US, this course will focus on the formulations of spatial encoding and image contrasts as exemplified in MRI. The inverse problem between detected signal and image source will be discussed for biomedical applications. The concepts of image resolution, image contrast, SNR and scan time will be illustrated quantitatively from an engineering point of view.
