Sarmita R.  Fundamental Skills in MRI Course


I have worked in MRI for about 1.5 years now and this course has been very beneficial so far. It has helped to understand the equipment better and to be less afraid of playing with parameters within reasonable limits

Excellent content. Even though I did an IRMER course in 2011, this was more in depth and explanations clear. Good speed of presentation and use of polls. Me me think and clarify
