OVERVIEW
This two-hour course will review:
  • Basic tumor angiogenesis by a tumor biologist expert;
  • Non-MR methods to assess tumor angiogenesis: contrast-enhanced ultrasound and perfusion CT, with advantages and disadvantages of each method highlighted; and
  • MR perfusion to diagnose and quantify tumor angiogenesis.
 
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
  • Describe basics of tumor angiogenesis;
  • Explain non-MRI methods to diagnose and quantify tumor angiogenesis; and
  • Explain MRI methods used to diagnose and quantify tumor angiogenesis.
