Title: Magnetic Resonance C47/23

is being offered by the Graduate School of Health, Aarhus University, spring 2021.

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).

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

Learning outcome:

  • 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 carbon-13 magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy applied in cells, animals and humans.

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.
