Year - 2020

This unit of study covers the technical aspects, anatomy, and clinical indications for magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the body, including cardiac, breast, liver, foetus, prostate female pelvis etc. MR protocols and techniques including sequence types will be explored with a view to gaining an understanding of how to deal with voluntary and involuntary patient motion issues faced in body imaging. An overview of newer technologies including MR/PET and lung imaging is provided. Topical areas in MR imaging are discussed, including issues such as scanning of patients with medical devices implants. Learning is supported by websites and video resources together with peer-reviewed clinical and research publications to demonstrate the appropriate application of different MR sequences and modifications required for different patient presentations.
