The Department of Radiology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is pleased to announce a 4D flow MRI training curriculum for physicians, technologists, and MRI researchers.
The program incorporates didactic instruction with practical live scanning at the scanner console and hands-on 4D flow data processing (3D flow visualization, flow qualification, etc.). 4D flow imaging basics and analysis concepts will be systematically introduced, including 4D flow MRI imaging protocols and data analysis workflows. Additional expert lectures will cover clinical and emerging 4D flow application areas. Download the 2018 4D Flow MRI Hands-On Training Course flyer.
