ParaVision Operation and Application Course

Billerica, MA, United States

The course date will be announced soon! It is designed to teach users about the most features of the software interface and will cover both low- and high-level imaging and spectroscopy techniques:

1. ParaVision® Operations:

  • Automatic adjustments (ADJ_SHIM, ADJ_SF and ADJ_REFG protocols)
  • Shimming Strategies (Fastmap/Fieldmap)
  • Setting up basic measuring methods and running acquisitions
  • Capabilities of the image display and processing for 2D and 3D data
  • Generation of parametric maps (relaxation and diffusion)
  • Utilities (data manager, macros and AUs, Linux tools)
  • Basic software structure and maintenance
  • Hardware: signal pathways and components

2. ParaVision® Applications:

  • Localized spectroscopy and basic CSI
  • EPI
  • Diffusion and DTI
  • T1 contrast imaging using MDEFT and RARE inversion
  • PVM modules (saturation, inversion, MTC, triggering, tagging)
  • Micro-imaging
  • Methods for short T2 samples
  • Flow MRI

Overview: MRI Training United States


This course presumes the knowledge of basic MRI technology. The attendees should have been using the Bruker scanner for several months.

To accommodate the wide range of the participants’ interests and their level of familiarity with ParaVision®, the class will be organized as follows: 

  • Participants will be able to select topics more freely according to their interests
  • Sessions will be conducted concurrently in 3 facility locations: an auditorium (for lectures with workstation hands-on exercises) and 2 demo systems, Biospec 7T and micro-imaging 11.7T
  • If required, selected sessions will be repeated on different days

The total number of class participants is limited to 12.
