Advanced refresher: neuro, abdomen, pelvis, msk, breast & oncology
4 days theory, 1 day hands-on
Participants supplement and deepen their theoretical and state-of-the-art knowledge of various aspects relating to MRI specialisations
Advanced component: various aspects relating to advanced brain imaging, abdominal and orthopaedic protocols, breast and oncology imaging.
Refresher component: short review of basics, overview of MR RF pulse sequences, MRI features: MRA-MRC- fMRI-DWI- DTI- spectroscopy- fat and water suppression techniques, key MR parameters, artifacts, parallel imaging techniques, interactive quiz
Brain component: perfusion, diffusion, fMRI, vascular, spectroscopy
Abdominal – pelvic component: pathologies, contrast behaviour, RF sequences, support techniques, artifacts, contrast agencies, protocol handling
Musculoskeletal component: why MRI; coils and positioning; protocol optimisation and contrast behaviour; RF sequences with the help of shoulder images; suggestion for shoulder protocol; open/closed systems; kinematic and dynamics; use of GADO: arthrography-i.v., fat suppression techniques, parallel imaging, artifacts, visualisation of bone, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, soft tissue and fluid (with the help of hip/knee/wrist images); MRI advanced: sports medicine; quantitative cartilage imaging and UTE
Breast component: Main MR “breast players”, MRM state of the art, used RF pulse sequences and support techniques, set up of protocols, post-processing, biopsy
Oncology component: Whole body imaging, diffusion imaging, perfusion prostate imaging.
Our trainings are tailored to specified learning goals, time available and the knowledge and experience of the group.
We train on-site and in-company. Or in external educational centres and universities. Global service.
