Learning outcomes
Knowledge

The student who successfully completes the course will have the ability to understand the principles of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and its application in living systems; will be able to demonstrate the knowledge of electromagnetic radiation interaction with living systems and the techniques for acquiring images and to evaluate T1 and T2 relaxation effects; will be able to demonstrate knowledge on the realization of basic coils for signal detection; will be aware of the power and pitfalls of the advanced techniques for quantitative measurements.

Assessment criteria of knowledge

During the oral exam the student must be able to demonstrate his/her knowledge of the course material and be able to discuss the principles and methods with appropriate terminology. The student will be assessed on his/her demonstrated ability to put into practice and to execute, with critical awareness, the activities illustrated or carried out during the laboratory.
