Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Credits: 3.0
Course Director: Ricardo Otazo PhD
Other Instructors: Ouri Cohen PhD, Youngwook Kee hD

Course Description

In this course the formal theory and principles of magnetic resonance image formation and signal contrast will be developed. In addition to the theory, students will gain practical exposure to common MRI data acquisition and image reconstruction algorithms. In addition, we will study the application of MRI in clinical and research problems of interest.

Course Objectives

The goal of this course is to provide students with a working knowledge of the physics and engineering principles underlying magnetic resonance imaging, such that they will be equipped to become software developers of new data acquisition and analysis techniques in MRI. Much of MRI development involves a comprehensive knowledge of the radiofrequency and magnetic field gradient pulse sequences used to acquire data, and the course will have a strong focus in this area.
