ESMRMB course on MRI Simulation in Copenhagen late June, 2015

05 Copenhagen Seite 1Together with co-organizer Tony Stöcker and an international faculty, Lars G. Hanson from the DRCMR is planning the ESMRMB course "MRI simulation for sequence development, protocol optimization, and education"  to be given June 29th to July 1st, 2015. The course addresses uses and development of MRI simulators such as the advanced JEMRIS simulator, and the locally developed Bloch Simulator targeted at MRI education. Practical information is here.

The course covers theory, application and practical implementation of MRI computer simulations, i.e. the simulation of spin dynamics and their coherent summation in spin systems under influence of the driving magnetic fields (RF pulses and field gradients). MR simulations based on the Bloch equations are of high educational value, and further serve as essential tools in basic MRI method development, sequence design and protocol optimization.

The picture below is from the first ESMRMB Simulation course given at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) in Bonn, 2013.
