The Oxford Clinical Neuroimaging Course is divided into give distinct modules, that contain a range of neuroimaging content. You can read about the contents of each module below or click here to download the full course programme.


  • Refresher of clinically-relevant cortical anatomy to learn to identify key landmarks (such as the central sulcus and inferior frontal gyri) in a pathological brain
  • Interact with 3D white matter tract models to understand which are the important white matter tracts and what they do.
  • Explore the diagnostic value of different MRI sequences for a range of conditions including inflammatory and demyelinating conditions, neuro-oncology and epilepsy, and what imaging features are most helpful to tell them apart
  • Follow along with our expert radiologist discussion as they interpret the imaging from interesting complex cases
  • Theory behind and clinical uses of advanced imaging tools including MR spectroscopy, functional MRI, arterial spin labelling perfusion, diffusion tractography, and quantitative metrics from diffusion MRI
  • Quantifying MRI using analysis tools for volumetric analysis, longitudinal analysis and other clinically relevant questions
  • Perform your own fMRI analysis, structural segmentation and tractography analyses with illustrated data in FSL (our free research software too)
  • See these imaging techniques being used in clinical action, including in neurosurgery (-guided, endoscopic, ultrasound-guided and awake), interventional neuroradiology and traumatic brain injury
  • Learn how research knowledge in brain imaging has been (or is being) translated into clinical practice for psychiatry, dementia and neurodegeneration
