Magnetic Resonance Analytic, Biochemical, and Imaging Techniques: Course Description

This free course, 'Magnetic Resonance Analytical, Biochemical, and Imaging Techniques' is taught by Professors Bruce Rosen and Lawrence Wald of the MIT Department of Health Sciences and Technology. Students who complete this course will receive an introduction to NMR theory and how it works with magnetic resonance imaging to assist doctors and researchers in obtaining valuable health data. In addition, students will study the concepts and theories associated with spectroscopic and relaxation phenomena. Some other topics include a comprehensive study of NMR imaging methods, image contrast, flow and real time imaging techniques and concepts of hardware design. Students will also study introductory cross-sectional image reconstruction concepts.

The OpenCourseWare materials include a list of assignments and solutions, exams and projects that are available in downloadable PDF files. There is also a reading list consisting of course notes, selected papers and recommended textbooks.
