This symposium will cover clinical neuroimaging applications at high field (3-4T).
The course will emphasize individual speakers' clinical experience at high field in
several focused areas- MR angiography, BOLD fMRI, and diffusion tensor imaging- in
addition to other clinical neurological imaging applications which benefit from high
field. The speakers will discuss advantages and disadvantages of high field (3-4T)
vs. field strengths less than or equal to 1.5T for clinical neuro MRI. Recognizing
that MRI at 1.5T is more technically mature, the speakers will also summarize specific
technical improvements in hardware and software that are likely to produce a noticeable
improvement in performance of clinical 3-4T systems.
Educational Objectives: Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
procedures that can be enabled or improved with MRI guidance; List devices that are
MR-compatible and commercially available; Recognize desired areas of further
