MR Physics

***Cary Based courses - COVID restrictions apply. A Siemens representative will contact you with details after registration.

The MR Physics class is a four and one-half day introductory course of the fundamental physical principles of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). It is targeted for MR technologists of any level of experience, who need to understand MRI at a deeper level. This class will provide an overview of how the MR system works, why sequences are designed the way they are, what causes many artifacts, and how the MR user choices are physically implemented by the system. The course is a lecture-based course. Upon completion of the course, the attendees should have an understanding of the physical principles of MRI, the general concepts of image contrast and artifacts, a high level understanding of the MRI system hardware, and basic clinical applications of the modality.
