Fundamental Skills in MRI for Radiographers

Hybrid Course


This MRI course for Radiographers combines 2 x single day live interactive study days (Part 1 and 2) together with e-learning support.

E-learning can be completed at the delegates' own pace and will be available between the first and second study days

thereby reinforcing the building blocks of knowledge gained from the study day components.

Access to e-learning is via our dedicated e-learning tool.


Course Focus


This course focusses on clinical scenario based learning to support application of theory to clinical practice, improving fundamental clinical skills in MRI

We integrate the use of an MRI Simulator within the course to assist delegate understanding parameter selection and manipulation and impact on image quality/scan time.

MRI Simulator




Delivered by Radiographers and other medical imaging professionals, for Radiographers, the live interactive study days feature the MRI Simulator, Polling, Discussion, and Breakout areas*

Study day and e-learning access will require a PC/Mac or tablet (ipad or Android). Integral webcam and microphone is preferable for the study day component although mobile dial in audio is supported (please contact us with any queries)


'I enjoyed the day. I am very fresh to MRI and I found the content was presented in a way that was easy to understand (even though I did have to think hard about the physics side of things). Loved that it was an open and easy environment and felt safe putting ideas/answers forward even if I wasn't correct'

'I really enjoyed the course, especially that questions were encouraged and interaction from the group was necessary. It makes it so much more interesting. The slides were clear and concise and I really appreciated having access to the MRI Simulator for my understanding of altering parameters'

Really informative and interesting course! Looking forward to part 2

Caroline G.  Fundamental Skills in CT Course


All aspects explained really well. Applications and parameters of the scanner now make sense

Chloe V.  Fundamental Skills in CT Course


Liz and Edward were very approachable. Felt no pressure. Explained with examples and drawings. Included us in group discussion. Great session!

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

Madara D.  Fundamental Skills in MRI Course


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
