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.understand the basic MRI physics governing cardiovascular applications and those sequence parameters necessary to optimize quality of the cardiocasular scans.
2.understand the impact/change of the sequence parameters on the interpretation of imaging the cardiovascular abatomy and physiology.
3.be familiar with the prospective and retrospective techniques to compasate for cardiac motion and how to deal with vascular pulsation.
4.be familiar with how some specific cardiac physiology problems can be addessed with cardiac MRI: fx aortic stiffness, cardiac output, ventricular stress etc.
5.Be familiar with different contrast agents used in clinic and its impact in MR images i term of signal changes.
6.be familiar MR saftey procedures.

The course will introduce the students to the applications of the MR technique within the cardiovascular system. The focus of the MRI applications will primarily be on how to determine clinically important aspects of abnormality in cardiac morphology and function. The course will also discuss/highlight those MR cardiovascular applications that the course participants are wish to know more about during the discussion sections. a week proir to the course start, the registered course paticipants will be asked to send a very short description on their research area and the CMR application they are interseting to learn more about. In general, the focus of the 3 day course will be on the MR basic for those physiological measurements that can be performed using MR modality and where the limit is in term of spatial and time resultion of the cardiac anatomy and physiology. The students will get knowledge of key terminology, acronyms, abbreviations associated with “cardiac” MRI and will be able to understand which parameters (in MRI scanning protocols) are of important for different applications of cardiovascular diseases.

People who are working with and/or interested in cardiac MR applications. No prior knowledge of MRI is required.

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:

Cardiovascular Research

Medical and Molecular Imaging

All graduate programmes

The course will be in English. However, if only Danish participants are enrolled parts of the course might be taught in Danish.

Lectures and discussions in small groups.

Course location

Please register before 13-08-2021

Seats to PhD students from other Danish universities will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and according to the applicable rules.
Applications from other participants will be considered after the last day of enrolment.

Note: All applicants are asked to submit invoice details in case of no-show, late cancellation or obligation to pay the course fee (typically non-PhD students). If you are a PhD student, your participation in the course must be in agreement with your principal supervisor.
