Weekday Educational Course:
How to Perform a Multi-Site Neuroimaging Study
Organizers: Gary H. Glover, Ph.D., Bryon A. Mueller, Ph.D., and Douglas C. Noll, Ph.D.
 
Skill Level: Basic - Intermediate
Thursday, 6 May 2010
10:30 - 12:30

OVERVIEW
This two-hour course will cover the design and implementation of multi-center MR neuroimaging studies. The importance of scanner QA and parameter selection will be discussed, as will the lessons learned from multi-center structural, diffusion tensor, functional and perfusion studies.
 
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
  • Recognize the challenges associated with performing a multi-site MRI experiment, including issues associated with QA, advanced planning, data management, and training;
  • Explain how existing multi-center MRI experiments were designed and implemented;
  • Describe the unique challenges associated with executing multi-center structural, diffusion tensor, functional, and perfusion imaging experiments; and
  • Implement a multi-center study using best practices.
