School of engineering in Physics, Applied Physics, Electronics & Materials
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance allows on one hand to study the structure and the dynamics of molecules (NMR spectroscopy) and, on the other hand, to image in 3D the nuclear magnetization (Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI). MRI is a diagnostic tool of utmost importance in medicine. Its application in neurosciences allows to study how the human brain works. The scope of applications and their rapid development make MRI one of the most used medical imaging techniques. The objective of this course is to understand its physical basis, to discover its technical implementation with examples of applications in medicine.
