Aim and content
This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at a Danish university, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. This also applies to PhD students from Nordic countries. After the enrollment deadline, available seats will be allocated to applicants on the waiting list.


Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. Have insight in the bio-physical principles of magnetic resonance imaging
2. Understand the basis for magnetic resonance imaging of physiology
3. Identify magnetic resonance methods of potential relevance to own research
4. Analyse strengths and weaknesses of magnetic resonance methods for imaging of physiology
5. Put into perspective the use of magnetic resonance for imaging of disease


Content
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is both a very active field of research and a routine diagnostic tool. As well as supplying high-resolution imaging with unrivalled anatomic soft-tissue contrast, MRI can provide multiple measures of tissue physiology. Research areas where MRI plays a key role include oncology, neuroscience, molecular imaging and many more. The curriculum of this one-week course includes: Bio-physical principles of MRI, fast MRI techniques and physiological imaging covering research state-of-the-art perfusion, diffusion, spectroscopic, functional and susceptibility weighted methods. The course will put emphasis on relating MRI methods to their use for physiological imaging in health and disease.


Participants
This course is relevant for students interested in and pursuing projects including advanced medical imaging. No qualifications are required, but a particular interest in magnetic resonance imaging will be expected.


Relevance to graduate programmes
The course is relevant to PhD students from the following graduate programmes at the Graduate School of Health and Medical Sciences, UCPH:

Medical and Molecular Imaging

Clinical Cancer Research

Neuroscience


Language
English


Form
Lectures, discussions, excercises, questionnaires, MR scanner hands-on sessions.
