Liver MRI can often provide very specific diagnosis of focal liver lesions, biliary abnormalities
and vascular disorders. It is often challenging to make the right choice of sequences and
contrast media to perform and interpret liver MRI. This 1.5 hour course will describe:
How to optimize liver MRI protocol;
The available contrast media and their choice;
A step-by-step approach essential to assess focal liver lesions; and
How to evaluate diffuse liver disorders.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
Evaluate the liver MRI protocol optimization
Describe various MRI contrast media and demonstrate their specific application;
Implement a step-by-step approach to diagnose focal liver lesions using MRI; and
Describe the role of MRI in diffuse liver disorders.
