MRI Image Creation and Quality Course
MRI Image Creation and Quality Course is organized by Medical Professionals.
Approved by the ASRT (American Society of Radiologic Technologists) for 1.25 Category A CE Credits.
License duration: 6 months from purchase date.
In this course, we will discuss how the data is collected and transformed into an image in MRI. Image quality is important, and because an image of poor quality can hide a pathology and lead to misdiagnosis, in this article we will also get to learn and understand what makes a good quality image, and how the parameters selected can affect the image quality. Image quality is important, because an image of poor quality can hide a pathology and lead to misdiagnosis.
