MRI 222 - MR Physics 2

3 CR
This is the final physics course in a series of two. The course content is a continuation of Physics 1  concepts including pulse sequencing, applications, coil selection as it relates to scanning selection, calculation of scan times, scan parameters, and imaging factors. Emphasis will be placed on the topics of gradient echoes, cardiac imaging, magnetic resonance angiography, diffusion, perfusion, and spectroscopy.

Additional Information: Formal admission to the MRI Program required.
Requisites: Take MRI 220 , MRI 230 , MRI 201 , and MRI 261  with at least a grade of C.
Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Identify the differences in gradient echo types and uses.
  2. Differentiate between fast imaging capabilities of Fast Spin Echo and Echo Planar imaging.
  3. Detail and discuss the application of motion in magnetic resonance angiography imaging.
  4. Characterize perfusion and diffusion imaging as the basis for functional magnetic resonance imaging.
  5. Identify and discuss advanced cardiac sequences and hardware utilized in cardiac disease detection.
  6. Differentiate between magnet types and MR coil usage.
