Follow this link for the course description.
The course provides the necessary physics background that underpins day-to-day medical imaging physics activities. It is aimed primarily at new entrants to the profession, but should be of benefit to postgraduate students, postdoctoral research workers, physicist-managers, representatives of allied commercial organisations and anyone wishing to deepen or re-establish their understanding of the physics of medical imaging.
The faculty is composed mainly of physicists, many of whom are internationally renowned for their expertise. A selection of key talks delivered by clinicians and other scientists provides the necessary broader scientific and clinical perspective. Overviews of specialised or research related topics, such as positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance spectroscopy are given.
There are many opportunities for informal discussions and there will be visits to the Department of Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound and X-ray Computed Tomography and the MR Units of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and/or the research labs of The Institute of Cancer Research.
The course is given in four separate units. Each course is repeated annually. Registration will be accepted here for any combination of courses 2-5.
Course 1 – The Magnetic Resonance Imaging & Spectroscopy course – is offered as a standalone training course, run in conjunction with IPEM, and for which CPD credits are available. Rates for courses differ for IPEM members for this course.
Course 3 (11 February 2020)
Image Theory, Perception and Processing.
Course 4 (12–14 February 2020)
Diagnostic Radiology and CT.
