TECHNICAL ESSENTIALS:
VASCULAR MRA COURSE
CLASSROOM + HANDS-ON MRI

Length of course

  • 4 days accredited course
    • 1st Oct to 4th Oct 2012
    • 2.5 days of theory followed by 1.5 day of hands-on training on MR system (with assignments). Participants can subscribe to different dates for the hands-on training via the web
    • emric_MRA_Oct01-04

Objective

  • Participants supplement and deepen their theoretical and state-of-the-art knowledge of various aspects relating to advanced MRA imaging.

Aim

  • Basic MR component
    • Course includes a theoretical and practical explanation of state-of-the-art MRA protocols. Radiographers can handle MRA examinations and adapt parameters and protocols. The goal is to achieve the best image quality and timing for arterial and venous phases by using specific protocols and manipulating scan parameters
  • Basic Neuro component
    • Course includes both theoretical and practical components, and a theoretical and practical explanation of state-ofthe-art brain and spine protocols. Radiographers can handle basic brain and spine examinations and adapt basic parameters and protocols. The goal is to achieve the best image quality for various pathologies by using specific protocols and manipulating scan parameters

Content

  • TOF, PCA, T2* Vein Bold, Dark/Black Blood MRA and plaque imaging, non-CE angio techniques, application of contrast agents, CE angio: 3D time-resolved, flow quantification and analysis
  • Hands-on training on Philips MR system and covers practical items such as:
    • Tasks on different MRA applications
    • Comparisons of different MRA techniques
    • Adapting some MR parameters
    • Workflow and protocol setup MR console and user interface
    • Workflow and protocol setup and patient/coil positioning
