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.
This lecture was held on Wednesday, January 15 at 11 AM (EST). Dr. Salerno will describe what k-space data is and how it relates to the MRI image. He will then discuss how magnetic field gradients are used to collect the raw MRI data in k-space. Dr. Salerno will provide some simple useful intuition about this often confusing topic!
The basic format of the webinar will consististed 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.
