Introduction to Imaging
By Steve P. on 21. July 2017 for Introduction to Imaging

Thank you for such pleasant over view enjoyed it much so easy to follow

T1&T2 Weighted imaging needs work
By George L. on 12. July 2017 for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Explanation of the T1 & T2 Terminology and how it works is lacking. Could have used way more slides to visualize this: MRI in Practice by C. Westbrook et al show how this can be done in Chapter 1. Important concepts which need to be properly explained, in this video it looks like it has been half heartedly done.
