Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
After completing this course, the student is able to
1. explain the classical nuclear magnetic resonance phenomenon and its use in MRI,
2. describe the imaging parameters and imaging sequence elements and explain their use in forming an image,
3. explain the principles of spatial frequency space, Fourier imaging, and their use in MRI,
4. explain how the properties of the image can be influenced.
