The world's longest running MRI course has had a major re-design.
The course is now exclusively online available to the whole of Europe, The USA, Canada and Australasia. It features 15 brand-new streaming lectures presented over 4 days.
Exclusively on-line and on-demand. Ten brand-new lectures covering the fundamentals of MRI - plus clinical technique for all of the commonly requested examinations in MRI. This course is essential viewing for anyone considering a career in MRI.
That is quite understandable, do you go for the underpinning principles and protocol optimisation offered by MRI in Practice Online, or do you choose the clinical technique explanations offered by the Handbook of MRI Technique course?
The good news is that you don't have to choose - because if you register on the MRI in Practice course, the Handbook course is thrown in free. Yes, really!
After you have enjoyed the 4-day MRI in Practice course you get free credits to watch the entire Handbook of MRI Technique course on demand, whenever it suits you. The first five lectures are designed to form the perfect revision for the topics covered by the MRI in Practice course. Participants tell us that they really help to cement some of the concepts into place. The second five lectures are absolutely indispensable for those who are new to the field and wish to get up to speed with clinical practice in MRI.
In summary, participants will enjoy:
▪ 4 days online teaching via Zoom
▪ 16 live Q&A forum sessions with the world-renowned MRI educators Dr. Catherine Westbrook and Dr. John Talbot
▪ 25 streaming lectures featuring our famous computer generated imagery
▪ 20 hours of MRI in Practice lectures
▪ 6 hours of revision videos and clinical technique instruction from the Handbook course.
All at a price that beats any of our competitors. In addition the course is a valuable source of CPD:
▪ UK - Society and College of Radiographers fulfilling no less than seven of their learning outcomes.
▪ Australia - ASMRIT - offers 30 HOURS of CPD appellation
▪ USA - ASRT 35 category A credits.
If you are a manager looking to fulfil the CPD or training-needs of your staff - there really is no choice - MRI in Practice Online and The Handbook of MRI Technique Online courses have you completely covered. The course currently enjoys an average customer excellence rating of 95% from all of our 243 participants over the last 12 months. This amazing deal will not last for ever - so book now!

Radiation Oncologists and Radiation Therapists
We welcome radiation oncologists and radiation therapists and have been a preferred education provider for both Elekta and Philips Medical Systems who manufacture MRI Linac machines.
Sometimes delegates lose their certificates or fail to download them after the course has ended. On some rare occasions a delegate may qualify for two certificates (for example if they are based in one country but working in another).
In any of the above scenarios we can replace, or provide additional certificates for an admin fee of £20.00. Please email ObscureMyEmail to let us know your name and the date of the course attended, then make a payment from the link below. We will send your certificate within 5 working days of payment.
Veterinary Radiologists and Radiographers
We welcome veterinary radiologists and radiographers and have a long-standing track record of teaching MRI to these disciplines. We have been running the MRI in Practice course exclusively for veterinary radiologists and radiographers since 2017. These courses are presented in collaboration with veterinary MRI radiologist Amy Zalcman, formerly at the University of Missouri and now on-line. Feedback shows that veterinary practitioners find this course extremely beneficial. Our course is now the go-to MRI course for veterinary practitioners in the USA and the UK. We also attract a large number of veterinary practitioners on our annual Sydney course in Australia.
Who would benefit from this course? For whom is it intended?
Primarily, MRI in Practice is intended to be a continuing professional development (CPD) course for medical imaging practitioners working in the field (or intending to work in the field) of MRI. We welcome radiographers, technologists, radiologists, radiation therapists, radiation oncologists, veterinary practitioners, veterinary radiographers, physicists, researchers and any other discipline that needs to understand MRI.
Will this course (does this course) make me a qualified MRI practitioner (permit me to work as an MRI practitioner)
We receive quite a few emails asking if this course will make someone a fully qualified MRI practitioner. This is not the case. If you wish to practice medical imaging, you first need to take an undergraduate degree in that field. This course is primarily a continuing professional development course for those already qualified in medical imaging.

How much does it cost to attend the MRI in Practice Course?
As a general guide, the base cost of the course is UK £700 GBP, USA $750 USD, A$1,400 AUD. Please visit the relevant page for current pricing for each course, these prices may be discounted.
The online course uses geo targeting technology and is currently offered in three time zones, GMT, CDT and AEDT. Participants can attend from any of the countries listed in the tabs below. Please note that the course is delivered synchronously and there may, therefore, be a time offset to the programme if you are not resident in one of the time zones stated above. Please note that the course is not offered in every country because the DRM copy-protection for the lectures is not universally compatible. If you live in a location that is not listed please contact ObscureMyEmail for more info.
The online course uses a combination of HD streaming video to present our trademark CGI graphics and user-friendly analogies that give our course an unsurpassed conceptual clarity that our participants really love. Our lectures use computer-generated imagery produced in-house and are the result of 13 years development and over 1000 CGI models and animations.
Some online course providers present their lectures directly from Zoom or by screen-sharing their own computer - this tends to result in a sub-optimal, jerky, low-resolution presentation with occasional dropouts due to loss of internet connection by the host and having to share bandwidth between a number of participants.
We don't do this, as teaching experts with over 30 years of experience in distance learning and blended learning (and, with formal academic qualifications in technology-enhanced learning) we use a blend of live face-to-face live sessions in Zoom and streaming HD video that is delivered via a professional broadcast server (AWS) to ensure the very highest quality and uninterrupted service , here is an example of what you can expect from our lectures…
Please feel free to share this video with anyone you think might be interested. There is a share icon at the top right corner of the screen when you hover your cursor over the window.
If you are trying to choose between learning providers, we recommend that you ask any other provider for certificated evidence of their teaching qualifications and an example of their teaching materials to compare with our presentation above. There are some "learning companies" out there who are not qualified in learning and teaching - and may even call themselves "clinical specialists" without holding post-graduate masters or doctorate qualifications in their supposed field of "clinical expertise". We think this is extremely unethical for obvious reasons - please don't get caught out!
We have a new course for 2022! It's based on our book The Handbook of MRI Technique and it rocks.
There are 10 new lectures revising the fundamental principles of MRI and also covering the clinical MRI technique for all most commonly requested body areas.
