Short Course: Neuroanatomy for Imagers
This course has been designed for people working in imaging but with no neuroanatomical background. It will introduce participants to the basic principles of the anatomy, the function of the nervous system, the major anatomical constituents and parts of the brain. Professor Alexander Hammers has received excellent feedback.
The course includes lectures. It is based on 180 slides but is highly interactive.
The next course date is Thursday 1st February 2024.
Short Course: PET Technology and Application
This three-day course is delivered by leading international experts from a range of academic, research and industrial institutions in the UK, Europe and North America. It is designed for researchers in the radiopharmaceutical and drug development industries, academic researchers, and scientists already working in commercial, clinical or academic PET centres.
This 3 day course is usually held in April.
Short Course: Simultaneous PET-MR: Science and Practice
This course will be delivered via a combination of live lectures and interactive sessions.
The first day will review either PET or MR theory separately for people with a background in the respective other modality. We then cover the new simultaneous PET-MR scanners in terms of technology and applications. There are lectures, interactive Active Learning sessions, industry perspective (by both GE & Siemens), workshops, and sessions on reading scans together with clinicians. The content of the course has been certified by the CPD Certification Service as conforming to continuing professional development principles.
This 3 day course is usually held in June.
