This module aims to enable you to:
- gain a comprehensive understanding of the physical principles and technology underpinning the acquisition, production and presentation of magnetic resonance (MRI) images
- develop your ability to critically analyse and evaluate a broad range of magnetic resonance (MRI) imaging applications and protocols
- develop your ability to comment on normal and variant anatomy seen in common MRI examinations.
Lectures will introduce the students to the physical principles of MRI technology and the clinical applications of MRI, delivered by Faculty experts with support from the technical and clinical fields.
Students will be exposed to current MRI technology and its applications in clinical practice, encouraging reflection on existing practice. Tutorials will be used to facilitate peer learning and sharing of information and directed study based on critiquing up to date literature and practice will be used to further stimulate the student's learning.
Postgraduate provision in Medical Imaging at the University of Bradford has long been established and is known for its quality and success in supporting development of healthcare professionals in their diverse roles, with students coming from around the UK, and full time international students choosing to study here.
The modules are delivered by an experienced radiography team, clinical specialists and medical physicists, and a research informed curriculum ensures it is relevant to current and innovative practice.
