Our Terms & Conditions, Please Read Carefully Before Applying

1.0 The Course

1.1 The Course Organisers

The live MRI in Practice course is presented internationally in 22 countries and on-line. The presenters are Dr. Catherine Westbrook and Dr. John Talbot (hereafter identified as the
presenters).
In most cases the presenters are contracted to deliver the course by a local course organiser who administers the course, takes payments from delegates and is usually registered for VAT etc. In some cases the organiser may be a registered company involved in health, education or both.
All requests for information relating to the administration of the courses including payments, refunds etc should be directed to the relevant course organiser. This can be done by using the on-line info request forms relating to each course. These may be on third-party websites.

Courses held in the UK, the USA, Australia and the Netherlands are organised directly by www.mrieducation.com and all enquiries should be directed to ObscureMyEmail.


1.2 Course Content

The course materials are updated constantly, to keep pace with changes within the field of MRI and to take advantage of the latest presentation technology and as such the course content may vary over time. The programme provided on this web site and in our promotional materials is for guidance only and we reserve the right to alter the timing and running order of the lectures to meet the requirements of the individual organiser and the venue.


1.3 Intellectual Property and Copyright Issues

The names
MRI in Practice, and MRI in Practice / The Course are copyright 1992-present date Blackwell Science (Wiley Books) & Dr. Catherine Westbrook.
All text and graphics in this web site and in the course materials are copyright (2009-present date) Blackwell Science (Wiley Books) and Dr. John Talbot.

1.4 Audio and video recording of the live course content is strictly prohibited including (but not limited to) the use of mobile phones, iPods, iPads, tablet PCs, voice recorders, digital cameras and any type of computer. The presenters reserve the right to ask individual delegates to leave the lecture room in the event of them using any type of mobile electronic equipment including laptops. Lectures will not commence if there are any electronic devices in evidence at the beginning of each session. Mobile phones may be brought into the conference room, but must be switched off and stowed out of site during lectures. Charging of any devices in the lecture hall is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN.

We operate regular checks with an electronic detection system to ensure that covert recording devices are not being used. This uses optical and radiofrequency scanning.

The presenters will pause presentations in the event that any portable electronic device appears to be in use during a presentation. We have had to introduce these rules following attempts to make illegal video copies of the course materials and they are strictly enforced.

1.5 On-line course protection against copyright theft

The online course uses geo-info software and digital fingerprinting that can be detected in the event that a video is recorded by any means. This content may be used as evidence to explicitly identify the person who captured the recording by date time and location. If such content gets into the public domain we always take legal action against the person responsible. Please do not attempt to record or share on-line content. Offenders will be prosecuted.
This includes screening the lectures to any third party. The on-line lectures are for individual rental as part of the course fee. Public screening, or screening in an institution such as a school, hospital or university IS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE. Accessing the lectures from a hospital, educational establishment, commercial premises or public space is prohibited. There are no exceptions made to this rule. In such cases legal action will be taken against the institution in question and they will be banned from accessing any further courses.




1.5 Visa Applications for International Courses

www.mrieducation.com are unable to provide letters of invitation for visa applicants. This is because we are based in the UK and are therefore not in a position to sponsor or support visa applications in countries other than the UK.


2.0 Fees and Payments

2.1 Course Pricing

Course pricing may vary by country and by venue and is set by the individual organisers (as defined in section 1.1). This will reflect the venue cost, the level of sponsorship and transport costs.
MRI in Practice (The Book) may be offered inclusive of the course fee in certain venues. Please check with the course organiser at the time of application. The course fee NEVER includes accommodation or travel.


2.2 Payments

For your peace of mind, all payments processed directly from www.mrieducation.com are arranged through Stripe. Stripe provide a secure, fraud-protected, banking infrastructure for on-line payments. Stripe payments may not be available from your international location. We currently do not accept payment via any other method. If you are being sponsored by your employer you will need to claim back your payment directly from them.


2.3 Refunds

There are no refunds offered under any circumstances for any of our courses that use Stripe payment options.

DO NOT APPLY OR PAY FOR ONLINE COURSES UNLESS YOUR HOME ADDRESS IS IN THE COUNTRY FOR WHICH THE COURSE IS INTENDED. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE MATERIALS AND YOU WILL NOT BE REIMBURSED.

For all other courses, please contact the course organiser for details. If a course is postponed for any reason, you will be offered a place on the rescheduled course.

2.4 Course Cancellation by the Organiser (VERY IMPORTANT)

The course has been running continuously for over 25 years and cancellations are rare (only on three occasions to date). In the unlikely event of a course cancellation please note that the presenters and course organisers (as defined in paragraph 1) are not responsible for reimbursing anything other than the registration fee (where applicable) or the deposit (where applicable). Course organisers are not responsible for the reimbursement of any additional costs incurred by delegates in connection to their attendance at the course (for example travel costs or accommodation costs). We therefore strongly advise delegates who are travelling to the host city and staying in the venue hotel (or elsewhere) to take out travel insurance to cover any lost expenditure in the event of a course cancellation. This is especially important if your travel costs are non-refundable.

MRI in Practice 4 day Programme
  • Why are there no clinical sessions on the programme?

    MRI in Practice is an MRI physics course using a non-mathematical conceptual approach. Some providers pad out their MRI courses with clinical sessions, here are the reasons why we do not

    • In our experience most employers prefer to train their staff in the clinical aspects of their role in the workplace using time-trusted hands-on learning.
    • Radiologists usually have their own preferences when it comes down to the choice of imaging plane, or the protocol used, this is unlikely to be the same as the method taught in a generic presentation.
    • Every scanner is different in terms of configuration, gradient speed, coil choice, pulse sequence availability and field-strength, there is no "one size fits all" clinical method.
    • In view of the above, we feel that to "teach" a generic clinical approach to neuro, cardiac, breast, MSK etc. that applies to every scanner, at every field-strength and to cover every angle is a tall order - and is highly likely be counter-productive when not tailored to your own local preferences.
    • For new installations or manufacturer-specific techniques you have a fantastic resource in your expert applications specialists.
    • Finally - time costs money so we feel that all of the above can be better covered in a book - which can be studied at leisure, read in your own workplace and can cover far more than a 60-minute lecture.
