The MRI in Practice Course is presented annually in Oslo, Norway by MRI in Practice authors Catherine Westbrook and John Talbot.
The course is presented in collaboration with Hans Flaata and the new Forum for Professional Development at The Norwegian Society of Radiographers.
The content is primarily aimed at radiographers, however, we also welcome 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 venue is the acclaimed Thon Hotel Opera, Conveniently located by the Central Station, the hotel forms the perfect base for our course and has the very latest conference facilities.
The course is offered with and without accommodation, please indicate which you require on the enquiry form.
The course is our full 4-day event, presented by MRI in Practice authors Dr. Catherine Westbrook and Dr. John Talbot. Since its first publication in 1992 our book MRI in Practice has been the recommended reading for anyone learning MRI. 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 present you with an easy learning curve.
Cathy and John are both qualified educators holding Masters degrees in MRI and are both Doctors of (medical) education. As such, they are ideally placed to offer the best educational experience in magnetic resonance imaging. The course typically attracts around 50-100 delegates, and usually sells out quite quickly, so early application is recommended.

1.1 The Course Organisers
The live MRI in Practice course is presented internationally in 22 countries. 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 USA and the Netherlands are organised directly by www.mrieducation.com and all enquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 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.
2.1 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.
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.
For courses organised directly via www.mrieducation.com, (Payment via Stripe) delegates may cancel their place on a course at any time up to 30 days before the course start-date. Under these circumstances a refund may be requested (minus a £30.00 GBP deposit to cover administration charges).
IMPORTANT Cancellations made by delegates after the 30-day deadline cannot be refunded, and no refunds are available to delegates who fail to attend the course for any reason. This is because 3rd party costs such as venue seating allocations, delegate day-rate and catering are non-refundable and must be paid for by the course organisers in advance. Places may, however, be transferred to another person with the prior agreement of the course organiser.
Courses organised by other parties may impose a different fee for cancellation and offer a different cancellation policy. If in doubt contact the course organiser BEFORE paying.
For courses organised in the USA delegates may cancel their place on a course at any time up to 30 days before the course start-date. Under these circumstances a refund may be requested (minus a $50.00 USD deposit to cover administration charges). the company address is
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.
