MR: Diffusion Imaging of the Brain

This program explains the concepts and examines the use of DWI in the brain.

MR: Diffusion Imaging of the Brain
  • Rs.500

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) is more sensitive for the early detection of stroke than standard pulse sequences and is closely related to temperature mapping. 

After completing this training program, you should be able to:
1. Recall the anatomy of the brain and brain stem.
2. Identify the physical principles of diffusion imaging.
3. Explain the meaning of apparent diffusion coefficient. (ADC)
4. Discuss clinical applications of diffusion imaging techniques.

REQUIREMENTS

The course objectives specifically target radiologic technologists who perform magnetic resonance (MR). Registered radiologist assistants and other specialties also may benefit from material in this program.
