Supervisor:
Department of Biomedical Technology
Synopsis:

The course deals with the following topics: nuclear magnetic resonance and electrical impedance tomography, theoretical foundations, principles of imaging methods and their use in clinical practice with respect to the limitations of technical parameters.

Requirements:

Credit requirements:

Sufficient participation in seminars, i.e. one excused absence is allowed (confirmation from a medical doctor) and successful completion of two tests, in which there will be questions that students will answer. The number of questions is 5-15 (a combination of MCQ - ABC-type questions can be implemented, where there is only one answer correct and open questions). Some questions may or may not carry more weight in the evaluation than others, such as those that involve a more complex arithmetic task or require a comprehensive approach. It is possible to get either the full number of points or no points for a single question. Partial points or so-called „half points“ are not awarded! To be awarded the credit, it is necessary to obtain a min. 50% of the possible maximum achievable points for both tests together.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. General introduction - examples, course content, aims, mathematical and physical foundations, basic concepts in the field of imaging using MR, polarization, excitation, precession and relaxation (mathematical and physical description and meaning),

2. Principles of MR imaging, spatial coding, gradients, resolution, contrast, pulse sequences, educational animations

3. MR HW and SW (film about MR system production)

4. Use of decibels, substitute s-parameters, possibilities of power transmission measurement, principle of vector (network analyzer), simplified block diagram of RF transmitter and receiver, preparation for exercises, problems of coils for MR, physical principles, types of coils, principle of coil design, preparation for exercise

5. Functional MR imaging, hybrid imaging systems with MR, molecular imaging based on MR, systems for preclinical imaging

6. Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT)

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Basic calculations in NMR. Numerical simulation of the process of creation and reconstruction of NMR image.

2. Experimental lab. tasks with RF coils for MRI.

3. Experimental lab. tasks with RF coils for MRI.

4. Experimental lab. tasks with RF coils for MRI.
