The second part of the course will be focused on programming of ParaVision® Methods (PVM). Method programming allows defining high-level interfaces to the experiments and is particularly interesting for users planning to install their experiments for routine laboratory work. Following an introduction to PVM the participants will be guided to develop several method examples of various levels of complexity. These will cover all important issues of PVM programming from simple parameter definitions to the usage of parameter groups and modules. New training units will be dedicated to programming of reconstruction tools within PVM methods and handling of navigators with the job-acquisition mode introduced in PV6.0.
Each training unit will be divided into three blocks: First, the teacher will give an introduction to the respective topic and exercises. Second, participants will work independently on the exercises on their own MRI system followed by a wrap-up session. The course material requires an elementary knowledge of ParaVision and basic skills in C-language programming.
Maximum number of participants is 21, minimum number is 9.
