Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks This course is the second part of a two lectures series, dealing with the physical principles of advanced concepts of magnetic resonance imaging and its applications in medical imaging. The content of the second part focuses on advanced concepts of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. The lecture starts with a brief review of the essentials of Physics of Magnetic Resonance Imaging 1. It continues with a taxonomy of advanced MRI methods, an overview of the physico-chemical interactions and popular corresponding tools. RF pulses, the extended phase graphs model (EPG) will be covered in detail. The notation of gradient moments and corresponding encoding of non-stationary spins prepare for understanding diffusion MR, MR Fingerprinting and Fast Imaging methods. Further, extrinsic and intrinsic contrast mechanisms for micro- and macrovascular flow sensitive MRI will be introduced with a specific focus on arterial spin labelling as a relevant advanced MRI method that is about to enter the clinical setting
