About Us

Welcome to the homepage of the Magnetic Resonance Systems Research Lab (MRSRL) in Electrical Engineering. Our lab designs new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques and equipment for improved disease diagnosis and treatment. These technologies enable MRI scanning with greater speed, clarity, contrast, and comfort. Students and staff work with physicians on imaging solutions for major health problems such as cancer, heart disease, blood vessel disease, and joint pain.


Professor Albert Macovski (Emeritus)


Electrical Engineering offers four medical imaging courses. Interested students are encouraged to enroll.
Course Content
EE369A Medical Imaging I: X-Ray, Computed Tomography and Nuclear Medicine
EE369B Medical Imaging II: Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging
EE369C Medical Image Reconstruction
EE469B RF Pulse Design for Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Note: EE369A is not a prerequisite for EE369B, but EE369A and B are prerequisites for EE369C.
