The Advanced Certificate in Magnetic Resonance Imaging will teach you to work closely with patients, using your knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and MRI principles to produce distinct images clearly.

Additionally, you will be well prepared to advance your career by extending your expertise. This month, part-time program is offered entirely. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a powerful imaging modality for diagnostic cardiology and research.

This imaging method provides combined diagnostic information of different tissue characteristics, such as the visualisation of the vascular tree and cardiac anatomy and function, as well as measurements of blood flow in the vessels, ventricular wall motion, myocardial perfusion and viability.

The technology for a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scan is based on the same kind that is used for an MRI. Both are noninvasive tests that use a strong magnetic field and radio waves to achieve detailed images of the body.

Please refer to MHRA Safety Guidelines for Magnetic Resonance Equipment in Clinical Use 2 for further details on the duties of an MR safety expert.

The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM) published a policy statement 5 outlining the role of the MR safety expert. It is the intention of IPEM that MR safety experts are accredited. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has proved to be a powerful diagnostic imaging tool in children and adults.

MRI uses low-energy nonionizing radio waves, and as such it is particularly well suited for pediatric and longitudinal imaging studies.

A study in diabetic patients, using whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (WB-MRI) and whole-body magnetic resonance angiography (WB-MRA), found a prevalence of 49 % for peripheral artery disease, 25 % for myocardial infarction, 28 % for cerebrovascular disease and 22 % for neuropathic : Sophie Mavrogeni, George Markousis-Mavrogenis, Genovefa Kolovou.

The functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scan is founded on the notion that blood that is carrying oxygen from the lungs behaves differently - in a magnetic field - than blood which has released its oxygen to the cells.

In other words, the magnetic resonance is different for oxygen-rich blood than it is for oxygen-poor blood. The clinical evidence is not sufficient to permit conclusions on the health outcome effects of magnetic resonance spectroscopy in the evaluation of prostate cancer.
