Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Know the essential elements in designing a translational study
  • Understand the physical principles of MRI and MRS
  • Know how to establish MRI and MRS acquisition protocols, to perform experiments independently on clinical and preclinical scanners, and to analyze results for the research topic of interest.
  • Explain the basics of organizing a successful MRS experiment, processing/quantification, modeling, and preclinical image processing (volumetry and DWI, ...)
  • Perform an MRI, MRS, DWI, ... and a simple quantification and modeling on provided data
  • Read representative MRS, fMRI and DWI papers
  • Discover the power of interdisciplinary interaction by working on questions and hands-on exercises in groups
