Primary Instructor: Edward W. Hsu
Designation:Elective
Credits: 3.0
Semesters Offered:Spring
Frequency Offered:As Needed
Catalog Description: In-depth overview of magnetic resonance imaging designed as foundation for students interested in MRI research. Topics covered include the underlying nuclear magnetic resonance phenomenon (origin and behavior of nuclear magnetization, Bloch equation, formation of echoes), theory and implementation of Fourier imaging, hardware instrumentation, and practical MRI considerations (SNR and artifacts). Students are strongly recommended to be familiar with linear systems (Fourier transform, convolution, sampling) prior to taking this course.
