Since 2001 Dr. Lipton has presented his one week intensive course, “Introducing MRI”. The course is given at the Gruss MRRC twice annually and receives consistently outstanding reviews. Taking students through MRI "from A to Z" without assuming any specific technical or mathematical background, "Introducing MRI” comprises 30 hours of highly interactive instruction. Two key features underpinning the accessibility of the course are its rigorous, yet largely non mathematical approach and its emphasis on direct relevance of key concepts to the creation of clinically useful MR images of all types.
