Dr Simon Doran, NCITA Repository Unit Manager, has recently organised the annual three-day Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy course at the ICR on 17-19 October 2022. The course, which has been running at the current venue since 1998, gave a detailed introduction to biomedical MRI and spectroscopy methods and applications.

The course was introduced by Dr Simon Doran, who also gave three lectures – on MRI Hardware (lecture 8) and k-space trajectories (lecture 12) and MRI sequence acceleration (lecture 14) – as well as teaching one of the tutorial sessions. Dr Sam Keaveney, NCITA Clinical MR Scientist, also gave a lecture on Image Contrast, Resolution and Signal-to-Noise (lecture 9).

The hybrid course was attended by clinical physicists, both from within the NHS and more widely (with in-person attendees from Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands and Norway) and postdoctoral and PhD scientists performing research in the field of in vivo MR.

Dr Doran would like to thank all the lecturers and demonstrators for generously giving up their time to deliver the course.
