This course consists of a two-hour teaching sessions covering the use of MR in association with PET, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) and EEG. Speakers will be both physicians and physicists. The principal topics to be covered are combined MRI/PET studies, combined MRI/HIFU studies and combined MRI/EEG, their technical considerations and clinical applications. The overall goal is to familiarize the attendee with the use of MRI with other modalities. The format will be didactic sessions with time allotted for discussion.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
List and explain the technical issues associated with combining MRI and PET;
Explain when and why combined MRI/PET, MRI/HIFU and MRI/EEG studies should be applied clinically; and
Describe the technical issues associated with combining MRI and EEG.
