Magnetic Resonance B (MRTY5053)


This UoS will review the application of both standard magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and MR angiography sequences, protocols and techniques used in CNS imaging for a range of clinical applications, e.g., stroke, tumour, epilepsy, inflammation, and neurodegenerative conditions. The application of more advanced techniques used in CNS imaging, including perfusion, diffusion, fMRI and proton spectroscopy, will also be explored with particular reference to the different image acquisition techniques. Learning will be supported by clinical case examples which demonstrate the appropriate application of different MR sequences and modifications required for different patient presentations.
