PhD teaching modules

We hold a variety of PhD teaching modules within the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre. 

F34FMI Functional Medical Imaging

Lecturer: Sue Francis, Physics

third-year undergraduate physics course which aims to introduce MRI, and the brain imaging techniques of functional MRI, electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG), giving an overview of the physics involved in each technique.

The course commences on 30 January with lectures in the Physics building on :

  • Monday, 3pm in B21
  • Friday, 10am in C5

Please contact Sue if you would like to attend.

 
EEG/MEG

Lecturer: Matt Brookes and Karen Mullinger, Physics

Run in conjunction with ONBI so places are limited. Runs intensively in week commencing 30 January 2017 (repeated annually).

Please contact Matt and Karen if you would like to attend the lecture aspect of this course. They will allocate places to the students for whom it is most relevant.

 
Gradients and RF lecture course

Lecturer: Richard Bowtell and Paul Glover, Physics

A postgraduate course on the basic hardware of MRI designed for students with undergraduate qualifications in physics, maths or engineering.
