Lectures on MR

Educational Webinars for Physicists and basic Scientists


The ESMRMB is proud to present a series of webinars which aim to give deeper insight into modern MR technology and their applications in clinical and biochemical research and development. The webinars are especially designed to illuminate on hot topics and special challenges arising in selected areas in the fields of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy.

Each webinar will be presented by a well-established expert in the respective field and the teachers will give you the opportunity to ask questions after the session. The webinar itself will be provided on demand 2-3 days after the modules, the link will be send out after the first module. The Webinars can be watched again, until 2 weeks after the last module on the ESMRMB eLearning platform.

The webinars are open for ESMRMB members only. Additionally, ESMRMB members will be able to view the webinar recording online at the ESMRMB website about 2-3 weeks after the webinar.

This webinar will examine the degrees of freedom made available by pTx. We will examine the use of pTx for improving image quality, encompassing methods now used as standard on clinical field strength MR systems, and research applications particularly at ultrahigh field. We will also discuss the safety challenges and opportunities that come from having flexible control of the radiofrequency electromagnetic fields.

Aim: In this webinar, we will discover how to build a successful model for learning-based MR image reconstruction.

Learning Objectives:

  • Overview on learning-based image reconstruction approaches
  • Building blocks in both real-valued and complex-valued domain, including convolution layers, activation functions, pooling, …
  • Data consistency layers
  • Study of selected models in detail
  • What can go wrong in learning-based image reconstruction?
