About this Unit
Magnetic resonance (MR) provides a suite of versatile information rich and non-invasive techniques of which magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy are the best known. These techniques have enormous applications across the sciences (e.g., inorganic and organic chemistry) but increasingly to medicine (e.g., to cancer diagnosis and treatment). Western Sydney University has state-of-the-art MR infrastructure and an international reputation in MR development. This unit will explore the diverse applications and teach experimental practice and fundamental physical principles that underpin all the MR-based techniques. It is intended for medical science, medical and science students who use/intend to use NMR/MRI technology or merely want a deeper understanding of its rapidly expanding capabilities (e.g., functional MRI) and applications.
