The Nano-Meter Film: How MRS and MRI Can Probe Tissue Microstructure

Room C106
07:00 – 08:00

Chairs: Chris Boesch and R. Mark Henkelman

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Describe methods in MRS and MRI that allow studies of tissue ultra-structure
  • Identify areas in which MR can contribute to the knowledge of tissue organization
  • Evaluate potential applications and limitations of MR methods to study compartmentation, order, and transport processes in vivo
  • Generate an overview of advanced methods in MRS and MRI that give information on the nanometer scale
  • Explain the influence of tissue structure upon MR parameters.

    The final five minutes of each talk will be set aside for questions.
07:00   Dipolar Coupling and Ordering Effects in Muscles, Chris Boesch.
07:30   In Vivo Tissue Compartmentation and Membrane Transport, Douglas L. Rothman.
08:00   Adjournment.
