The SCMR Education Committee is proud to present the MRI physics webinar series, SCMR WEBINAR SERIES: PHYSICS JUST THE BASICS. This series is a great resource for radiology trainees, CMR imaging trainees, those new to CMR, MRI technologists, and anyone else who has an interest in learning the simple fundamental concepts of how MRI works should participate in the webinar.
Dr. Anthony Aletras of School of Medicine, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and Cardiac MR Group, Lund University, Sweden will speak on “Relaxation and Echoes”. This webinar will build upon the prior lecture on basic physics. T1, T2 and T2* relaxation mechanisms will be described in the context of image contrast. Spin echoes and gradient echoes will also be explained.
The basic format of the webinar will consist of a didactic lecture for 30-45”, followed by a question and answer period for the remainder of the hour. The difficulty level of the physics presented will be targeted toward clinicians.
