Syllabus


PHYSICS OF MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING
Description of physical principles underlying MRI (spin behavior, nature of magnetization). MRI from zero to four dimensions. Introduction of conventional, fast, and chemical-shift imaging techniques. (Spin echo, gradient echo, FLASH, EPI, and variable flip-angle methods.) Basic signal processing techniques (projection reconstruction, fourier transforms, discrete FT, and sampling theorems). The physics begins with the introduction and derivations pertaining to the Bloch equations, T1 and T2 relaxation times, rf penetration, and diffusion. Introduction of flow imaging, MR angiography, and brain/functional imaging. Sequence and coil design; parallel imaging methods. Latest developments (e.g., MR fingerprinting, diffusion tensor and susceptibility weighted imaging) for optimal image contrast, speed, and parameter measurement in data acquisition.

Grading

There is a maximum number of 100 points available. Points are derived from the following set of activities.

In summary, what will we do in this course?

Actually, we will have a good chance to cover most of the text and you should be able to understand any topic in the book on your own at the end of the class. In order to touch on most of the chapters and their subjects, we will, of course, not do everything in each chapter. But it will be fun to see if we can be successful in understanding the main points of the whole book, and in practicing that understanding by way of the homework.
