Description

MRI Essential is a 7-module course designed to provide an introduction to Magnetic Resonance Imaging for anyone interested in understanding what it is, how it works and how some of the basic physics revelations of the 18th century led to what we know as MRI now.
The MRI Essential course is an overall introductory course to prepare users to cross-train into MRI, refresh knowledge of MRI basics, or help other healthcare professional learn more about the modality.
Some of the topics covered in the 7-module set include: MRI safety, patient care in MRI, pulse sequences, proton spin, parameters and how they affect image quality, gradients, Fourier transform, proton spin and frequency, magnetic field strength, MRI safety zones, and types of MRI scanners.
Each module lists objectives that will be covered in the module. Modules include metaphors that help facilitate learning and interactive animations to help relate a concept to a visual representation that the user can control. Each module concludes with a summary and a short quiz to test comprehension of the material covered in that module.
