Reg.no: 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.

Contents:
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.
