MRI in Practice - The Course

“MRI in Practice” the book, was first published in 1993. Now in its fourth edition, it is considered an essential text for many MRI courses including the registry exam in the US and for post graduate MRI programmes in the UK, Europe South America, Africa and Australasia. The amazing success of this book, which is the World’s best-seller in its genre, mainly lies in its clarity and logicality. It clearly provides clinical MRI practitioners relevant information at the right level.

With this philosophy in mind MRI in Practice is now the basis for one of the World's most popular MRI Courses.
Presented by authors Cathy Westbrook and John Talbot, the course has been delivered in 20 countries across 5 continents, and teaches hundreds of delegates each year. In addition to these impressive figures, the course has a well deserved reputation for having an informal approach that allows delegates to enjoy the learning experience - and take advantage of the networking opportunities that are fostered by this model.
