Unit of study_

Magnetic Resonance A - MRTY5052

This unit of study will explore the application of standard magnetic resonance (MR) imaging sequences, protocols and techniques used in clinical musculoskeletal imaging. These techniques include variations of spin echo, gradient echo and inversion recovery. MRI hardware, RF coils and spatial image encoding, fat suppression techniques and common image artifacts will be reviewed. MR safety aspects from the perspective of both staff and patients will be discussed. Learning will be supported by clinical case examples to demonstrate the appropriate application of different MR sequences and modifications required for different patient presentations.


1 x online quiz (20%); 1 x 2000wd essay (30%); 1 x 1.5hr online exam (50%)
