Magnetic Resonance Course

Short courses in Sydney, open to everyone.

Medical Radiation Science courses in Sydney, open to the general public.

Learn about medical radiation with our Medical Radiation Science courses in Sydney – short courses open to everyone.

Understand the latest advanced techniques in the magnetic resonance field from an magnetic resonance industry perspective. This magnetic resonance course is a high-level introduction to important diagnostic magnetic resonance techniques, as well as new advances in the MRI field in the modern health care system.

This magnetic resonance course will start with basics of magnetic resonance, and then delve into magnetic resonance in radiation therapy, prostate, pelvis and abdomen, top clinical neuro imaging indication, advances in magnetic resonance, MSK and rectal MRI, in addition to advanced applications. Additionally, the role of magnetic resonance in radiation therapy and innovative advances in magnetic resonance will be covered. Participants attending this magnetic resonance course will be equipped with a general understanding of the latest advanced techniques that can ensure the delivery of improved and quality patient care and more thoughtful scientific methodologies.

Learning Outcomes

This course will:

  1. Present the latest applications in the magnetic resonance field.
  2. Provide participants with a deeper understanding of advanced techniques.
  3. Contain a special focus on prostate, pelvis and abdomen, MSK, and rectal magnetic resonance fields.
