Learning objectives, training objectives
The aim of the course is to give an in-depth introduction to the numerical computation of radio-frequency (RF) fields in magnetic resonance (MR) systems. Main focus will be the application to RF coil design and patient safety.
Target Audience
The course is intended for MR physicists, engineers, other scientists, and PhD students who either wish to start working in the field or RF coil development and/or RF exposure or who already have basic to intermediate experience in RF simulation.
