course is designed to provide valuable information concerning
the use of magnetic resonance biomarkers in clinical trials. The
expert speakers will identify what constitutes a good MR
biomarker, with a focus on practical utility and regulatory
issues. There will also be a “roundtable discussion” with the
goal of sharing personal experiences using MR biomarkers in
Upon completion of this course,
