There is no weekly homework as part of this course, only two end-of-course assessments.
You will produce a 3,000-word written assignment evaluating a pulse sequence of your choice. You will produce an A3 poster evaluating an aspect of MRI safety, equipment, quality assurance or department design.
Formative feedback will be provided on a 500-word abstract on a technical MR issue of your choice to prepare you for the final written assignment, which will assess your academic writing skills as well as your knowledge of the instrumentation of physics principles of MRI.
There is an award attached to the PGCert level (of which this course is a part) - kindly provided in partnership with Siemens Healthineers - to the student with the best overall academic performance.
You will be taught by a combination of lectures and tutorials as well as workshops by industry.
This course also includes presentations from industry to update you on state-of-the-art MRI software and hardware.
This course is worth 30 credits toward eligible programmes.
