CUBIC will be hosting an MRI workshop specifically designed to benefit Radiographers and Radiologists working on, or interested in MRI, both in a clinical and research environment on Friday, 31 March and Saturday, 1 April 2023.

The course will consist of a series of lectures, followed by practical sessions based on the theory. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with MRI parameters on the various MRI pulse sequences, which will provide a better understanding of the latter.

Course content:

  • MR safety
  • Components of the scanner
  • Signal creation
  • Image creation
  • Image formation
  • MR Contrast

Certificate of Attendance and CPD points will be issued to participants of the course.
Registration closes Friday 17 March 2023. Space is limited.

The course is held at the Cape Universities Body Imaging Centre (CUBIC) which hosts Africa’s first 3T Magnetom Skyra, whole body research scanner. CUBIC is situated adjacent to the Neuroscience Institute at Groote Schuur Hospital.
