RF coils: Design and build your own coil
The Course "RF coils: Design and build your own coil", organized by the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology, will be held at the University of L’Aquila, 17-20 September 2018.
The course provides an overview of the basic principles of designing, constructing and testing of RF coils for both animal and human scanners. Practical sessions will cover approximately 50% of the course, in which participants will learn to build surface and volume RF coils relevant to their particular interests. More advanced topics include double-tuned coils and coil arrays. Finally, components such as hybrids, couplers, shields, baluns and isolation circuits are discussed. The course is designed for basic scientists and engineers, but also has been attended in the past by clinicians, radiographers, applications specialists and other MR users interested in gaining a better insight into RF coil technology.
This course is intended for scientists and engineers who have a basic knowledge of mathematics and simple electrical circuits. Attendees should have a working knowledge of magnetic resonance basics.
