WEEKEND EDUCATIONAL COURSE
Body MRI by the Experts
Organizers: Clare Tempany, M.D., Bernard E. Van Beers, M.D., Ph.D., Qun Chen, Ph.D.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Saturday, 3 May 2008
This one-day course is the first part of the week-long "Body MRI by the Experts" course. We have selected specific topics where new and exciting clinical developments are showing interesting new clinical applications. This session will cover new cutting edge clinical areas for the body MR clinician looking to introduce these new methods into his/her practice.
The liver imaging talks will show the impact of diffusion MRI, MR elastography, and MR quantitative imaging of fat and iron on the detection and staging of diffuse liver diseases. The role of anatomical, functional and molecular MR on the assessment of abdominal tumors, kidney diseases, prostate and breast cancers will be shown.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
This course is designed for intermediate level clinical radiologists, technologists, and physicists; with interests in body MRI, functional, quantitative and molecular MR, and multiparametric MRI; and 3-5 years of clinical MRI exposure or 3-5 years on MR technical applications.
