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 the 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. In the UK and Australasia, CPD endorsement/appellation is offered on a whole-course basis rather than by-the-day.

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 short outage 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 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 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.

Delegate comments about recent Australian courses

  • This course was fantastic!! 

    Every word that was spoken was pure gold and informative. 

    I learnt so much. Great analogies, great animations. FANTASTIC!

  • The course was excellent. 

    Your ability to keep the interest in the subject without making it feel like the course is dragging, is a testament to the ability of the presenters.

    Blown away by the whole course.

  • It was great being able to watch the course in my own home, at my own pace.

    I wish my undergrad MRI physics was presented like this.

  • Analogies used to explain concepts were fantastic. 

    CGI images were exceptional. 

    Wonderful delivery of lectures from both Catherine and John.

  • Great online platform, 

    Live Q&A, 

    Fantastic graphics, 

    Excellent introduction & foundation for MRI

  • Liked online delivery for pausing lecture reasons 

    Loved content- brilliant teachers 

    Made complex concepts understood with excellent graphics and analogies 

    Real- world applications 

    Friendly, knowledgeable, fun teachers

    Well worth the cost.

  • The course was amazing. I've been telling my friends about it. 

    I watched the videos at 1.5 speed so that combined with the extra 15 minutes gave me time to pause and take notes and rewind bits.

  • I liked the ability to watch the lectures more or less at my own pace so I could take notes. 

    It was a flexible delivery, but structured enough that I knew I could find answers if i needed them. 

    Instructors are great and very down-to-earth!

  • I liked the simplicity with which everything was explained. 

    Being a radiation therapist with with no previous experience in MRI this was super helpful.

  • I thought it was very well put together and can’t think of anything to improve it.
