Magnetic Resonance B - MRTY5053

Year - 2020

This UoS covers 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, is explored with particular reference to the different image acquisition techniques. Learning is supported by websites and video resources together with clinical and peer-reviewed research publications to demonstrate the appropriate application of different MR sequences and modifications
