'Great course, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Much prefer having this course as an online option. I have wanted to do this course for a while now and kept on putting it off due to travel. Having the option to do this course via Zoom was perfect for me!'

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


I just want to say thankyou to Liz and Edward for this fantastic course. You were very thorough and covered the majority of the areas a newbie into MRI like myself found very overwhelming and daunting when I initially tried studying the physics aspect on my own. So once again, thank you both very much
