CTI Seminar Series: "Basic MR Imaging Physics: Spin Gymnastics" with Dr. Walter Kucharczyk

When: Tuesday, December 3, 2019
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM  

Where: Lee F Rogers Conference Room, 676 N. St. Clair, 8th floor, Chicago, IL 60611

Audience: Faculty/Staff - Student - Post Docs/Docs - Graduate Students

Contact: Abby Hagler  

Group: Department of Radiology

Category: Lectures & Meetings


The lecture is based on material given every year in a course at the annual meeting of the ISMRM, usually delivered jointly by Don Plewes (Physicist) and me (Neuroradiologist). The lecture is intended to provide an overview of the entire MR imaging process, starting with considerations of the electromagnetic property of certain nuclei, and ending with spatial encoding of radiofrequency signals and image reconstruction. Video animations are used extensively, with minimal mathematics. The topics include: spin, magnetization, resonance, excitation, induction, signal detection, relaxation times, magnetic gradients, spatial encoding, and image formation. The lecture starts with a single hydrogen nucleus and ends with an MR image of a head.
