Erasmus Basic MR Physics 2017

EMRI Erasmus Course

Program Description


This one-week module is part of the ERASMUS Course (EMRI) on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) which will provide the diagnostic imaging professional with a sound understanding of the basic physical principles that underpin MRI.  The course format includes formal lectures accompanied by supervised tutorial Q/A sessions on MR physics – covering everything from basic NMR, T1 and T2, through to advanced neuro, body and cardiovascular applications.  No previous knowledge of MR physics is assumed.  The University of Dundee will award a certificate to successful candidates, and 25 CME credits will be applied for.  An attendee limit of n=25 delegates is proposed in order to optimise focussed learning (including one-to-one tutorial discussions with members of the faculty) and social networking.  Delegates typically attend from a variety of disciplines, including Clinical Radiology, Medical Physics, Radiography and also staff/students from clinical or scientific university departments.

Tea, coffee and lunches will be provided on a daily basis during the course.  Special dietary requirements must be requested in advance; however a vegetarian option will be available each day.  In addition, a welcome drinks reception will be held on Monday 25th September on the Royal Research Ship ‘Discovery’ (used by Captain Scott’s Antarctic expeditions in 1901).  A course social dinner will also be held at St Andrews – traditionally known as the home of golf and recently famous as the University town where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William and Kate) studied and met.  A free bus will be arranged to transfer delegates the short distance from Dundee to St Andrews and return.  All of these events are fully included within the registration fee. 

Accommodation is widely available at hotels within the central area of Dundee, where dining and entertainment facilities are close at hand.    A full list of recommended hotels (with a booking discount) will be available online via the Dundee and Angus Convention Bureau website once registration payment has been received.  Accommodation is not included in the registration fee - delegates will be responsible for making their own housing arrangements.

Ninewells Hospital Medical School, Dundee, UK.  The hospital is within easy reach of the centre of Dundee.  Registration will be from 09:00-10:00 on Monday 25th September 2016 – via the main reception of the hospital.

The central area of Dundee is convenient for transport links including bus and train, and Dundee also hosts a small airport where direct flights are currently available to/from London Stansted.  Many airlines also provide international flights from Europe to Edinburgh and Glasgow where onward road and rail connections are available to Dundee.  By rail there is also a regular service from London Kings Cross which is adjacent to the Eurostar terminus at London St Pancras.
