Genetic Diseases: Diagnosis and
Wednesday, 5 April, 08:15 - 09:30
Arend Heerschap and Linda Chang
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
the role of imaging methods in general in the diagnosis and treatment evaluation of
MRI and MRS parameters of particular usefulness to characterize inherited metabolic brain
some cases of these diseases where unambiguous diagnosis is possible on the basis of MRI
and/or MRS approaches;
how the study of transgenic animals with missing or modified proteins may help understand
the nature of genetic diseases;
the potentials of MR to characterize the phenotype of these animals.
