This subject covers the concepts of physics and instrumentation in the field of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It briefly reviews the basic physic principles of MRI and extensively considers the physics of advanced techniques including MR spectroscopy. It covers reconstruction techniques used in MRI. The subject reviews the basics of image formation techniques for spin echo imaging and extensively considers advanced imaging techniques of gradient echo imaging, fast spin echo, magnetic resonance angiography and echo planar imaging. The subject also covers the principles of magnet, gradient and radio-frequency coil technology. Safety considerations and bio-effects on MRI will be covered.
