Course Information

Course Information


MRI in Practice

The MRI in Practice course has been presented since 1992 and is the longest-running and probably the best-known course of its kind in the world. The course is presented by MRI in Practice authors Catherine Westbrook and John Talbot. Cathy and John are both qualified educators holding Masters degrees in MRI and are both Doctors of (medical) education. They have specialised in distance-learning via webinar for the last 15 years, having taught a Masters degree in MRI via distance-learning delivery. As such, they are ideally placed to offer the very highest quality educational experience in magnetic resonance imaging, both live and on-line.
Since its first publication in 1992 our book MRI in Practice has been the best-selling book in its field. This course is based on the book and will help you to grasp all of these important topics with ease. The new 5th edition has been completely redesigned to follow the course topics and combined with the high definition CGI graphics used in the course it will provide you with the best possible grounding for your CPD requirements or as an adjunct to academic study. If you are planning on attending the course we recommend purchasing the book as it essentially forms the "course notes" and will present you with all of the revision material you need once the course has ended.

The Course Content

The content is primarily aimed at radiographers/ MRI technologists who require CPD or are taking boards exams/academic courses. We also welcome veterinary practitioners, radiotherapy practitioners, physicians, radiologists, cardiologists and neurologists. The course features generic terminology and is therefore applicable to a multidisciplinary audience.

The online course format is exactly the same as a live course with streaming lectures each day and live Q&A and revision sessions. Each day covers an important theme:

• Day 01 - Fundamental Principles
• Day 02 - Pulse Sequences
• Day 03 - Spatial Encoding
• Day 04 - Image Quality

Because of the way CPD points are awarded, in North America, the days are available to purchase separately. Please note, for anyone relatively new to MRI, day 01 is absolutely essential viewing. Without a good grasp of the fundamental concepts covered on Day 01, it is unlikely that any of the other content will be fully understandable. The full programme is shown below and a detailed breakdown of the lecture topics can be found on the course information page.
Please note that participants who attend the entire MRI in Practice course also get free access to our Handbook of MRI Technique course (ten on-demand lectures) at no extra cost.

In the UK and Australasia, CPD endorsement/appellation is offered on a whole-course basis rather than by-the-day. In the UK, you can choose to purchase the full course, but split your attendance across two concurrent course deliveries. For example you could choose to attend days 01 and 02 on the Summer course and then days 03 and 04 on the following Autumn course. This may be attractive to participants who find it difficult to get long blocks of study leave, or anyone who is very new to MRI and wishes to put the basics into practice before attending the second two days. See our terms and conditions for full details.

The Online Format

The online course uses a blend of HD streaming video and live webinar sessions.
After application we will send you a link that allows you to enrol on our members-only site www.mri-in-practice.com. When you have registered with that site, you will be able to access a course information page that explains how the course works and also allows you to test out your computer hardware to make sure you can access our streaming content. It is very important to do this as soon as possible before the course begins.

Rewind, Revisit, Revise

Live lectures tend to look suboptimal when presented from online conferencing software - jerky, wobbly laggy and entirely dependent on the host's internet connection. One tiny glitch with the router and everyone is left looking at a blank screen. We thought we could do better, and all of the participant feedback for the online course shows that we have. We put the entire course on Amazon's professional video-streaming servers. It was a huge undertaking that took nearly 8 months. We wrote over 100,000 words of narration, we made the equivalent of 12 feature-films worth of lecture video, complete with professional quality computer generated imagery and professional audio recording. The resulting lectures are like nothing we have presented before.
All of the streaming content is delivered synchronously - just like a live course - but with the added bonus of extra time built into the programme that will allow you to revisit, re-watch and revise any parts of the lectures that you wish to see again. This is a major advantage that can only be realised using online delivery and our participants really love it.
Importantly, your viewing experience doesn't rely on the host's internet connection.
The face-to-face Q&A and revisions sessions are delivered via Zoom webinar. We will send you all the necessary links shortly before the course begins.
If you are interested in how the course was developed from an educational perspective, there is a blog post here.

Radiotherapy and Oncology Professionals

The proliferation of new hybrid MRI/Linac machines has resulted in a big influx of radiotherapy professionals to our courses. We are the preferred education provider for both Elekta and Philips Medical Systems who make these machines, so be reassured you are choosing the right course with MRI in Practice Online!

Veterinary Practitioners

Veterinary practitioners need look no further than MRI in Practice. We have been running the MRI in Practice course exclusively for veterinary radiologists and radiographers in the USA since 2017. These courses are presented in collaboration with veterinary MRI radiologist Amy Zalcman, formerly presented 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.

International Timings

The course runs over 4 days in real-time, it is offered in three time zones, Chicago, London and Sydney. Participants from any of the countries listed on this website are all eligible to attend any of our courses - but please bear your time zone in mind when choosing which course to apply for. Also remember that CPD accreditation is location-based. The USA course does not offer Australian or UK CPD credits for example (and vice versa).

MRI in Practice Online: 4-Day Course

MRI in Practice Online: 4-Day Course

You can choose to attend the entire course (best value) but each day is themed - so you can mix and match the days you wish to attend. We strongly advise attending day 01 (Fundamentals) before attending any other days, or the content may not be as understandable. Participants attending for all four days will also be given free access to our Handbook of MRI Technique course - at no extra cost. The handbook course contains ten additional lectures available on-demand.

You can find more details about the lecture content in our brochure.

Here is our themed programme, it contains all you need to know in just four days.

MRI in Practice 4 day Programme

NEW course for 2022! A Handbook of MRI Technique Online (On Demand Lectures)


In addition to the 15 lectures shown above, all participants attending MRI in Practice Online will also be given access to our new Handbook of MRI Technique course AT NO EXTRA COST!
This is an amazing deal that no other course provider can match. The Handbook course is based on our book of the same name and covers clinical indications, patient care, patient preparation and screening, MRI technique (patient positioning, slice prescription and pulse sequences) anatomy and pathology - for all major body areas PLUS 5 concise technical lectures that revisit and reinforce the concepts covered on the MRI in Practice course - making it perfect for revision. Other providers teach this material using OUR BOOK - cut out the middle-man. Don't pay for a physics course and a clinical technique course when we offer you both for the price of one!

Best of all, the Handbook course is available on demand and the lectures can be accessed wherever and whenever the participants wish to take part. The course is also available as a stand-alone course (to countries where MRI in Practice is not available) but all MRI in Practice (4-day course) applicants will be given free early access to this course starting right now!

For readers living in Africa, Asia or South America, you can register for the Handbook course at our new companion website www.mri-technique.online.

    Firstly - let's check to make sure you fulfil the basic requirements for attendance:

    1. Check that you live in one of the geographical areas listed below. If your country is not listed, this course is not available to you. There may be other courses that are more suited to your time zone - see course menu at the top of the page.
    2. The course requires you to have access to just 2 resources, a Zoom meeting and our eLearning portal at www.mri-in-practice.com. Zoom is used for live face-to-face sessions, our eLearning portal delivers the lecture content as HD streaming video.
    3. Ensure that you have a reasonably fast and stable internet connection and a PC, Mac, MacBook or Laptop to access the lectures. This must be in a domestic location, not a commercial premises, hospital or educational establishment. The lectures are not accessible from mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones.
    4. Your computer must have the latest version of one of the following browsers installed: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox. The lectures may not play in other browsers.
    5. You will also need a device that can access Zoom and is equipped with a webcam. This can be a smartphone or tablet, it does not need to be the device you use to watch the lectures.
    6. The organisers cannot be held responsible for local connection issues or equipment failure.

    So far so good? Assuming you have the right equipment and reasonable broadband connection in your home…

    1. If you are ready to purchase a place on the course today, you may apply using the application form below. If you do not intend to pay today, please bookmark this page and come back when you are ready to make a payment. UK delegates (only) may request an invoice instead - please continue to complete the form today if required.
    2. When you have submitted the application form a payment page will open. Use our secure link to make payment via our payment partner Stripe. Please note that there are no refunds offered once payment has been made. You may, however exchange your place with another person, or attend the next available course (if applicable) if anything happens to prevent you attending the course you apply for.
    3. If someone else is paying on your behalf, please ensure that you let us know when the payment is made and by whom (email us at ObscureMyEmail), otherwise we will not be able to reconcile the payment with your application.
    4. You will receive a receipt from Stripe, please keep this as evidence of your having paid. This will be sent to the email address submitted to Stripe, if it doesn't appear to be delivered check your spam folder.

    Congratulations - you are coming on the course….

    1. A few weeks before the course begins we will send you an invitation link to join the course at our eLearning portal www.mri-in-practice.com. This requires you to visit the website and fill in a short membership form.
    2. It takes one or two working days to approve your membership.
    3. As soon as your membership is approved you will be sent an email with a username and password for our exclusive members-only area at mri-in-practice.com. Make a note of these and keep them safe because you will need them to access the lectures. We ask you to log on to our members-only area as soon as possible because it gives you more information about the course and also provides a test video for you to play. It's important to do this because the test video is hosted on the same streaming server as the lectures. It will ensure that your browser, broadband and computer are capable of screening the videos.
    4. Because this is so important we require you to register and log into www.mri-in-practice.com well in advance of the course. Participants who do not join the course by the close of business on the day before the course begins will not be able to join the course or access the lectures. We will send you a reminder if needed.
    5. Shortly before the course begins we will send you a link to join the zoom meeting.

    On the first day of the course….

    1. The programme runs in exactly the same way as the live course. You can see the timing in the course programme graphic above. It's important to note that the programme follows the time zone advertised. This means that participants in other time zones will need to adjust the timing accordingly. For example someone from Hong Kong can attend the UK course, but they will start the programme at 3:00pm rather than 8:00am and finish at midnight.
    2. On Day 01 we will ask you to log into Zoom using the link we provided. It is very important that you log into Zoom each day before the programme begins.
    3. When everyone has joined the Zoom meeting we will give you a link to access the streaming lectures at www.mri-in-practice. For this you just need the username and password for the members-only area as described above.
    4. For the best experience we recommend that you have the lectures streaming on your PC/Mac/laptop and Zoom open on a tablet or smartphone next to your PC. Alternatively you can use the same PC to stream the lectures and the Zoom meeting, however, on older machines this may use a lot of your system resources and cause lagging.

    If the above sounds complicated - it really isn't. You just need those two resources and a decent computer set up - most of the conditions mentioned above will already be met if you have a modern PC and use one of the usual browsers. We have been running the online version of the course now for almost a year and the feedback to date has been incredibly positive. A significant majority of participants prefer the online course model to attending a live course. The electronic delivery system has attracted excellence scores of over 90% on average.

    Comments made by our participants…

    • "I liked the combination of zoom allowing interaction with the lecturers coupled with the high quality teaching videos. I think the videos work better than zoom lectures would. Also the revision quizzes were great, a helpful learning resource."

    • "First on line course I have done, I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy, but found it very well-run, informative and easy. Also great to be able to be at home rather than away for few days. Learned a lot and enjoyed doing it."

    • "The explanations and graphics were easy to follow and understand and the ability to access the material at one's own pace, rewind and repeat was great."

    • "I enjoyed the pre-recorded presentation format as it allowed me to repeat complicated sections and take notes. I would have previously said I preferred face-to-face however this format does not have a handy rewind function and you can often miss information on a face-to-face course."

    • "I've gained excellent knowledge through the course. It was taught and delivered excellently. I also liked the fact that it was interactive and 'face-to-face' via zoom, but we had control (compared to sitting in a class and waiting for a break)."

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 Course Attendance

In the USA, CPD is calculated by the hour and the course is, therefore, available to purchase by the day.
In the UK and Australia CPD is offered on a whole-course basis, and the course is sold as a 4-day event. Participants only wishing to attend for particular days are welcome to do so, however, no CPD certificate can be awarded unless the participant has been seen to attend the whole course and watch all the lectures.

In the UK, participants can choose to split their attendance across two consecutive UK courses. This flexible approach may help to facilitate study leave, and also will allow people who are very new to the field, to put the basic principles into practice before attending the second two days. This option is offered under the following firm conditions:

The full course fee is paid up front at the time of registration.
The days must be attended in the correct order.
The person registering and attending days 01 and 02 must be the same person attending days 03 and 04. Attendance may not be shared between a number of people.
Both courses must be UK deliveries.
If the participant is unable to attend days 03 and 04, for any reason, the remainder of the course fee is forfeited. No refunds are available and no substitutions may be made, there is no option to switch dates to a further course delivery.
A CPD certificate is awarded only after having attended all four days.

Delegate comments about recent USA courses

  • Incredible lecture series, and truthfully one of the most rewarding academic experiences in my adult life. 

    The graphics are as astounding as the ease at which Dr. Talbot and Dr. Westbrook navigate the physics of MRI. 

    Truly brilliant! Thank you.

  • I liked everything! It was the best MRI class I've ever taken. Fantastic graphics and lecture material.

    The analogies used to explain difficult concepts were one of the most helpful portions of these lectures and really increased my understanding of MRI physics. 

    Would 100% recommend this course to others.

  • Wow, the best MRI course ever!

    I like that you both have similar but slightly different approaches for certain topics. What may not have been super-clear one way, was then cleared up shortly afterwards.

  • This has been the best MR physics educational experience. 

    I would attend the course annually and recommend it to everyone involved in MRI.

    Fairly flexible schedule and AMAZING graphics!

  • Loved the animations. 

    It is apparent how much time and passion was put into the course. 

    I feel lucky to have been able to attend. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise with us!

  • The amount of knowledge in one (Zoom) room here was incredible. 

    It is clear Cathy and John have much training and skill in educating from their organization of the content and break down of difficult concepts.

    The model of the MRI scanner was fantastic in granting what, for me, was a never-before-seen ability to understand the physical layout and components.

  • Visual animations were amazing!!! 

    I can't say enough about those for visual learners.

  • Very good presentation & delivery! And very nice job relating MRI to real life with animations!! 

    It solidified my knowledge in MRI.

  • Fantastic job making the content easy to visualize and conceptualize! 

    Well organized, great coverage of important topics.

  • I travelled to the UK to attend this course, now its available online - absolutely brilliant.
