Advanced Imaging Course

The Advanced Imaging Course (AIC) is intended for customers who have at least routine ParaVision® experience as well as basic MRI knowledge.

The course is based on ParaVision 360. It is intended for customers having already PV 360 or who will upgrade to PV 360 in the near future. It takes place twice a year and covers the following key topics:

  • Protocol Customization
  • Shimming Strategies
  • Localized Spectroscopy
  • Perfusion Imaging
  • Diffusion Imaging
  • UTE and ZTE imaging
  • Angiography
  • Abdominal and Cardiac Imaging: Triggered and Intragate based
  • Relaxometry

Overview: MRI Training Europe

During the course, you will learn how to customize protocols and modules in order to obtain different image contrasts, to use parallel imaging techniques and change parameters to improve image quality, scan time and resolution for specific applications.

The course will cover the complete workflow of a typical MR experiment from parameter and scan setup to image processing and data evaluation, generation of various parametric images such as, relaxation time mapping, ADC, rCBF and velocity maps, assessment of dynamic experiments for e.g. cardiac and perfusion imaging.

During hands-on training, on line workstations and spectrometers will be provided, so that the participants – in groups – may repeat parts of the exercices on a BioSpec and/or PharmaScan systems.

No method or pulse programming is covered.

The course will also include topics not suitable for ICON customers, e.g. MR spectroscopy or diffusion tensor imaging. ICON customers are welcome to join the course during these training topics but they will not be applicable on ICON MRI scanners.
