MRI – The Inside Story, from Picture to Proton and beyond -  Autumn 2020

After a thorough review of the course, in the future it will be run as a three day event at an intermediate level, rather than a four day course, with the last day being at an advanced level.

We have taken into consideration the delegate feedback, the hospital staffing limitations and funding allowances for training   The course is designed to meet the staff needs by providing the necessary underpinning knowledge, confidence and motivation to support them in their everyday clinical environments.

*     Instead of being a modular course, the delegates now attend for all three days.  This has worked really well at the basic level and we feel delegates get the most out of the content and whole course experience.

*     A reduction of a day will help with the difficulties of staff getting time off from the department

*     Reduction in cost of attending the whole course.

*     All delegates will receive the latest edition of MRI from Picture to Proton book

*     The mornings will concentrate on the physics and technical elements 

*     The afternoons will cover clinical applications of MRI 

*     An advanced MRI day is likely to be scheduled at a later date 

The major change is a reduction from 4 days to 3 days
You will receive the new textbook MRI fromPicture to Proton (3
rd Edition)
