CUBIC hosts its first MRI Physics for Radiographers Workshop

3 Dec 2015 - 14:00

The Cape Universities Body Imaging Centre (CUBIC) UCT held its first workshop on the Basics of MRI on Friday 27th & Saturday 28th November 2015 at Groote Schuur Hospital.

This two day MRI hands-on workshop was specifically designed to benefit radiographers working on, or interested in, MRI in both a clinical and research environment.

The workshop consisted of a series of lectures, followed by practical sessions based on the theory. During the hands-on sessions, participants had the opportunity to experiment with MRI parameters on the various MRI pulse sequences. The course content specifically focused on MR safety, components of the scanner, signal creation, image creation, image formation and MR contrast.

The course will be repeated on 26th & 27th February 2016.
