This unit introduces the student to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as an advanced imaging modality with specific emphasis on routine diagnostic protocols. The essential physics of MRI is considered alongside an integrated analysis of the components of the image processing chain related to magnet strengths coil design and instrumentation, examination of pulse sequences, scanning techniques and protocols and contrast enhanced imaging. It also considers the quality assurance, aspects of sequence design and the factors that determine image contrast and spatial resolution. FID signal sampling and image reconstruction methods are reviewed, in the context of SNR consideration and artefact production. An overview of MRI imaging design sequencing, such as Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy. MRA dynamic imaging and functional (fMRI) is also included.
