Online MRI Teaching Ressources

Top educator and COMP gold medal winner Prof. Jerry Battista from Western Ontario has decided to make available materials that he is using in his classes.

Find below his message and the links to three incredibly well-done videos.

Dear Colleagues and Educators,

I sincerely hope that you are all remaining healthy during this challenging time.

In view of the urgent switch to On-Line courses, I am informing you of an educational set of 3 video lectures that we produced recently at Western. As you may know, I was delivering these lectures “live” for a few years in the past. During the summer of 2019, we decided to capture the lecture content in video format. Our goal was purely educational – these videos have not been ‘monetized’. You may use them as fillers or interlude in your courses during this stressful time for students. The reactions from Western’s Physics students has been very positive during a beta-testing year.

Part 1: Introduction – Guitar and Musical MRI Concepts (30 min)
Target Audience : mid-undergraduate Science students


Part 2: MRI Scanner Parts & Basic Pulse Sequence (55 min)
Target Audience : mid-undergraduate Science students

Part 3: MR Image Reconstruction with Fourier Thinking (48 min)
Target Audience: senior undergraduate/graduate Science students


Please make your students and MRI colleagues around the world aware of these links to instructional resources.

I welcome your/their reaction, comments, corrections, and suggestions.

Thanks and stay safe !

Jerry J. Battista, Ph.D.

Professor Emeritus
University of Western Ontario
