Discussion points of the webinar:

  • What are some alternative approaches to MR pulse programming that avoid the steep learning curve of traditional (vendor-specific) pulse programming platforms?
  • How can I use Pulseq or TOPPE to implement a custom pulse sequence from scratch?
  • What are some potential benefits of these approaches for multi-site research studies?
