Course description

Expiry date: June 1, 2023

Our online Virtual MRI Console Simulator course provides for students and technologists a virtual MRI interface that allows them to manipulate, in real time, image contrast, acquisition time, signal-to-noise ratio, and spatial resolution, as well as the number of slices allowed per acquisition. Before providing access to the virtual MRI simulator, the course offers theoretical chapters to remind users of the basic and fundamental principles of MR.

Using the MRI simulator in this course, you can optimize the acquisition parameters to answer 6 concrete optimization cases. Use all available parameters, such as TR, TE, turbo factor, and bandwidth to optimize the quality of the sequence. Be careful to avoid generating artifacts to obtain a good optimization. The acquired image will react to your changes as you make them! Go from a T2 turbo spin echo to a T1 spin echo easily, and watch the changes live on the MRI simulator.

Virtual MRI Console Simulator is suitable for technologists seeking online continuing education credits for their state and/or ARRT ® renewal, as well as for students looking to learn and increase their MR imaging competencies.
