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
A 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.
This course commences in semester 2 with lectures in the Physics building:
Please contact Sue if you would like to attend.
Lecturer: Matt Brookes and Karen Mullinger, Physics
Run in conjunction with ONBI so places are limited. Runs intensively in semester 2(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.

This course runs in semester 2 in the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre, University Park Seminar Room..
Medical imaging methods in the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre
Lecturer: Penny Gowland and Sue Francis, Physics
A directed journal club covering most aspects of our work.
This will commence in the spring term in the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre, University Park Seminar Room. Further details can be found on Moodle.
Topics for the summer term include:
- Spin echo and stimulated echo and FSE
- 3d and 2d EPI, evi, presto
- FLASH, spin warp, balanced ffe
- SENSE and GRAPPA and k space
- Shimming: Bo and B1
- Spectroscopy localisation, editing and decoupling
- Undersampling in MRI
Lecturer: Richard Bowtell, Physics
This is a 4th Year Undergraduate Physics module which covers the basics of magnetic resonance, beginning with a semi-classical view and then covering the quantum picture.
Speak to Richard Bowtell if you would like to attend.
