Lectures on MR - RF simulation for MR systems: Coil design and safety

Society/Institution: ESMRMB
Date: 10.02.2015 - 13.02.2015
Venue: German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ)
City: Heidelberg
Country: Germany
Language(s): English
Main Topic: RF simulation
Expected number of participants: less than 50
Type of course: targeted to physicists and basic scientists
Description: 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 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 commercial simulation platforms. The goal of the course is to enable the participants to solve typical MR-related field problems with suitable numerical models and to implement post-processing procedures to characterise multi-channel RF coils and to assess the RF exposure of patients/volunteers. The course on will focus on: -Commonly used numerical methods (e.g. FDTD/FIT, FEM) -Characteristics of the solution in the time and frequency domain -Basics of electromagnetic theory -Use of principle of reciprocity in MRI -Generation of appropriate numerical models -Interpretation of numerical results -Validation methods for numerical results -Principles of RF coil design and coil characterisation -Implementation of post-processing procedures for coil characterisation -Numerical assessment of the RF exposure of the human body -Learning through practical exercises with application of different numerical methods to fundamental MR-related problems -Numerical assessment of the human RF exposure and RF safety of implants
