Fundamentals of Biomedical Imaging: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Understand Biomedical Imaging, physical principles of NMR and basics of MRI through Fundamentals of Biomedical Imaging: Magnetic Resonance Imaging course.
Medium of instructions English
Mode of learning Self study
Mode of Delivery Video and Text Based
Learning efforts 4-5 Hours Per Week
The Certification course on Fundamentals of Biomedical Imaging: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Online Course is taught by Rolf Gruetter, Professor, EPFL. This physics course introduces the Vivo bio-imaging modalities and the candidate learns about the physical principles of major in the same, focusing on the magnetic resonance imaging, popularly called an MRI.
In the initial part of Fundamentals of Biomedical Imaging, professors diligently describe the dynamic of spins as well explained through a magnetic field. This explanation leads to significant notions of magnetic resonance (MR), relaxation, and excitation. Further in this stage, the basic mechanisms of functional MRI, image reconstruction and MR spectroscopy will be discussed.
The next stage of Fundamentals of Biomedical Imaging: Training establishes an important link to life sciences. This is shown by theoretical and practical examples which exemplify how physics contributes towards life sciences and by learning how the prevailing physical principles surpass bio-imaging. Further, the student will learn the practicality regarding respective imaging modalities, their premise, use, limitations, and biological safety.
