The course C47/26 Magnetic Resonance is being offered by the Graduate School of Health, Aarhus University, 2024

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).

Requirements for participation: as criteria

Aim: To familiarize the student with the principles of magnetic resonance and its use in biomedical research.

Learning outcomes: 

  • 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 on 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 36 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, 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, Lotte Bonde Bertelsen, Irene Klærke Mikkelsen, Simon Fristed Eskildsen, Michael Væggemose, Steffen Ringgaard, and others.

Venue: Aarhus University, Aarhus.
