Introduction fMRI: BOLD Acquisition & Practical Considerations

08/08/2020: 16:00  - 16:30 
Weekend Course 
Room: Saturday Parallel 3 
This course describes the acquisition of functional MRI (fMRI) data
and the practical concerns and trade-offs involved when designing
imaging protocols. Focus is given to blood oxygenation level dependent
(BOLD) acquisitions with a gradient-echo (GRE) 2D echo-planar-imaging
(EPI) sequence. Key sequence parameters and common artifacts are
