In response to feedback provided by the global CMR community, the SCMR Education Committee is proud to announce a pilot MRI physics webinar series, SCMR WEBINAR SERIES: PHYSICS JUST THE BASICS. 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. Michael Salerno, MD, PhD Associate Professor of Medicine, Radiology, and Biomedical Engineering, and Director of Cardiac MRI at the University of Virginia will speak on "The Basics of MRI Hardware". This lecture will build on the prior lectures by Dr. Aletras and provide a connection of how the hardware relates to the MR physics image acquisition.
The basic format of the webinar will consististed of a didactic lecture, 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.
