MR protocols optimisation with compressed SENSE

This course is designed for radiographers who want to gain a better understanding of the technical aspects of one of Philips’ newest innovations Compressed Sense. Besides comprehensive lectures, there will be ample time for live scanning and MR protocol simulation. This is not a basic course of utilization of the system and not a clinical course.
