Magnetic resonance Imaging: Advanced clinical applications, Safety aspects, Quality controls
The EFOMP in collaboration with the Czech Association of Medical Physicists and the Department of Dosimetry and Application of Ionizing Radiation of Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague would like to invite you to the next
ESMPE MRI 2017
The school will be aimed at advanced tasks connected with Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The School will coverthe main aspects of MRI physics and technology and will focus on safety aspects involved in the use of MRI as well as quality control of MRI equipment. This two-and-a-half day event will be accredited by EBAMP (European Board of Accreditation for Medical Physics) and is intended for practicing clinical Medical Physicists who are involved in Magnetic Resonance. As in last year’s school, there will be an optional examination at the end for those seeking a higher level of certication beyond attendance.
