BME 1466—Advanced Topics in Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Course Description

This graduate level course is intended to provide an in-depth coverage on the theory, practice, and applications of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Topics to be covered include cardiovascular imaging, neuroimaging, body imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, oncological imaging, and cellular and molecular imaging.

The MR imaging techniques, pulse sequences, and contrast agents appropriate to different applications will also be described, in order to equip students with practical knowledge for hands-on work.

The format will be largely based on lectures and literature readings, with invited speakers as appropriate to provide a clinical perspective.
