The World’s Biggest MRI Course - at Home in the UK

The World’s Biggest MRI Course

- at Home in the UK



The MRI in Practice Course has been presented since 1992.

From 2020 our courses are also offered online.

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 combined with the high definition CGI graphics used in the course it will provide you with the best possible grounding for your registry examinations.

The Content

The content is primarily aimed at radiographers, however we also welcome veterinary practitioners, radiotherapy practitioners, physicians, radiologists, cardiologists and neurologists. The course features the same lecture-format as is presented in all of our other host countries 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.

Rewind, Revisit, Revise

Live lectures look shockingly bad in Zoom - 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 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!

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 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.

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 UK courses

  • It was a well oiled machine! With physics not being my strong suit, for me it was beneficial to have it broken down in the way it was presented. Well done!

  • The whole course ran very smoothly. Excellent graphics. Ran smoothly on my computer.
    Plenty of quick re-caps from previous lectures in order to make sense of new information.
    Explained in a way in which I now understand concepts that I didn't before.

  • The visual diagrams were amazing and shows that a lot of work has gone into creating the course. As a person that is not naturally good at physics it really helped my understanding of the subject and kept me engaged in the presentation.

  • Loved the animations for physics explanations. I like the theory related back to practice part the most.

  • It was a amazing course. Congrats to everyone that did it! I refreshed a lot of my knowledge in mri and learned a couple of new and interesting things that I will try to apply to my daily scanning! Thank you! Great experience.

  • I liked the interactive sessions after each lecture and the quizzes at the end of the day. I also liked the fact you could reply or pause when listening.

  • Lecturers, course material, analogies, communication ...all wonderful and brilliant.

  • Was great content though the duration for the course was short but overall it's brilliant. I enjoyed it and both Dr Westbrook and Dr Talbot were amazing.

  • The Artefact sections were incredibly useful to identify and will be applying that to practice.

  • I liked being able to rewind and pause the lectures so I could learn at my own pace within a given time frame. At a live event I would have missed half the content and wouldn't have learnt as much.

  • Course was fully loaded, interesting, educating. Lecturers were very knowledgeable and could impart knowledge adequately. Video graphics were excellent and delivered 100%

  • I've been scanning for a long time and studied these concepts before but the content and explanation was the best I've experienced.

  • Best course I have ever attended.

  • The animations were superb making some of the most difficult concepts comprehensible.
    In tandem with the explanations given by the speakers a difficult subject was made accessible.
