Spin Up - Down Under


The MRI in Practice Course has been presented annually in Australia since 2004.

For 2021 our Australian course will be offered online. Live courses will resume when the COVID 19 pandemic has ended.

The Course

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 we therefore recommend that you purchase a copy as it will provide you with a comprehensive set of "course notes".


The Content

The content is primarily aimed at radiographers, however we also welcome veterinary practitioners, radiotherapy practitioners, physicians, radiologists, cardiologists and neurologists. The online course features the same lecture-format as is presented in all of our other international locations 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. The full programme is shown below and a detailed breakdown of the lecture topics can be found on the course information page.


The 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. 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. 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 Radiation 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!


Availability

Please note that due to technological restrictions the online course is only available to people who are physically located in Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Singapore. Please do not apply if you will be in any other geographical location when the course is presented. This is due to time-zone synchronisation with mri-in-practice.com. Our website automatically serves the content at the programme times according to AEDT.

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 info@mri-in-practice.com.


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. 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.


For live USA courses (not the on-line course) please contact Dr Amy Zalcman at:

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.

Delegate comments about recent Sydney courses

  • Analogies used to explain concepts were fantastic. CGI images were exceptional. Wonderful delivery of lectures from both Catherine and John.

  • 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.

  • I wish my undergrad MRI physics was presented like this.

  • I really liked the pace and accent the lecturers spoke. I enjoyed the CGI and 3D graphics. As a trainee physicist, I really found this course helpful as there are not many MR experienced physicist in Australia, so this was very helpful. Thank you!

  • Easiest explanation of MRI I had so far. Good balance between lectures and breaks. Very good graphics. Easy to follow lecturers.

  • John & Catherine explained this course really well, I completed my Master in MRI but I was very lack of the actual understanding in the physics.
    Thank you so much for explaining so well and easy for us :)
