Image quality in MSK and body MRI course

This course is designed for radiographers who want to gain a better understanding on how to increase MR image quality. Besides extensive training on MR simulators, there will be ample time for live scanning. This is not a basic course of utilization of the system and not a clinical course, and it is pre-requisite to being a Philips MRI user.
