This two-hour course is a part of the Clinical Intensive Neuro Course, and is also open to all registrants. It will focus on a few of the novel imaging techniques/sequences in current clinical practice, advances and new contrast agents and how to use MRI in prediction models for clinical outcome. Expert speakers will cover:
SWI and ultra-short T2;
Imaging at high field;
New contrast agents; and
Prediction models in MRI imaging for clinical outcome.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
Describe the use of SWI and ultrashort T2
Compare the advantages and disadvantages of high field imaging;
Describe new and developing contrast agents; and
Explain how MRI findings can be used in prediction models for outcome.
