The course C47/25 Magnetic Resonance is being offered by the Graduate School of Health, Aarhus University, 2023.
Criteria for participation: University degree in medicine, dentistry, nursing, or master’s degree in other fields and/or postgraduate research fellows (PhD students and research-year medical students).
Recommended knowledge for participation: University degree in medicine, dentistry, nursing, or master’s degree in other fields and/or postgraduate research fellows (PhD students and research-year medical students).
Aim: To familiarize the student with principles of magnetic resonance and the use in biomedical research.
- General overview of the underlying principles in magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy with relevance for applications in biomedical research
- Outline of magnetic resonance applied in research studies of organ functionality and diseases
- General overview of hyperpolarized magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy applied in cells, animals and humans
Workload: The full workload of the course is expected to be 45 hours
Content: The course presents basic principles of magnetic resonance spectroscopy, imaging and hyperpolarized MR applied in biomedical research.
Examples illustrate the position of state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy as one of today’s most potential dynamic and functional research methodologies in the cardiovascular system, in neurophysiology and neuropsychology, in the uro-physiology and the musculoskeletal system.
Measurements of blood flow, perfusion and fluid diffusion; brain functionality/connectivity, and metabolic flux quantification are explained with reference to cancer and organ diseases following ischemic stroke, diabetes etc.
Instructors: Kim Sivesgaard, Christoffer Laustsen, Esben Søvsø Szocska Hansen, Irene Klærke Mikkelsen, Lotte Bonde Bertelsen, Michael Væggemose, Steffen Ringgaard, and others.
Venue: Aarhus University Hospital (AUH), Aarhus
