Course title:

RF simulation for MR systems: Coil Design and Safety


Date: August 28-30, 2019
City: Aachen/DE

Venue: FH Aachen - University of Applied Sciences



The course ‘RF simulation for MR systems: Coil design and safety’ is designed to give an in-depth introduction to the numerical computation of radio-frequency (RF) fields in magnetic resonance (MR) systems with the main focus on the application to RF coil design and patient RF safety. The course programme includes modules with theoretical lectures, practical exercises as well as hands-on training on the commercial simulation platforms CST Studio Suite and Sim4Life.

After the course, participants will be able to solve typical MR-related field problems with suitable numerical methods and corresponding models, to interpret the calculated field distributions and to perform appropriate post-processing procedures to characterise multi-channel RF transmit coils and to assess the RF safety of patients/volunteers under consideration of common exposure scenarios.

The course is intended for MR physicists, engineers, other scientists and PhD students who either wish to start working in the field of RF coil development and/or RF exposure or who already have basic to intermediate experience in RF simulation.

The course takes place within the Lectures on MR programme of the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB)
