The aim of this practical block course is to familiarize the students with magnetic resonance imaging as a substantial non-invasive non-destructive imaging technique that is widely used for medical diagnosis.
It is also to give them hands-on experience on how to build the MRI probe from A to Z including
|Content of teaching|
In order to prepare attendees, the following chapters will be offered, spread over the week as lecture units, and accompanying the practical work:
- Theory of magnetic resonance imaging
-The MRI probe and the principle of reciprocity
- RF resonators
- Coaxial cables and cable traps
- Tuning and matching the MRI probe
- Effects of material susceptibility
- The mechanical support of the MRI probe
- Introduction to ParaVision, the MRI imaging software.
The course includes a concise introduction to the theory of MRI and the hardware of the MRI scanner. This will be followed by a number of work-packages through which the participants will construct and test their own functioning MRI probehead, with which it will be possible to record a proton-MRI image of a sample containing sufficient water. The probehead will be operated inside a Bruker MRI machine at the end of the one week course.
