Oncologic Body Imaging
ORGANIZERS: Shahid M. Hussain, M.D. & Bachir Taouli, M.D.
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced
Monday, 9 May 2011

This 1.5 hour course is designed to demonstrate the current/traditional (morphology-based) methods as well as novel methods for tumor response assessment. Speakers will describe:
How we currently utilize CT and MRI to assess treatment response;
How the novel methods based on diffusion and perfusion imaging can be utilized to improve the assessment of tumor response; and
The role of whole body MRI in oncology.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
Evaluate the current/traditional methods of tumor response based on CT and MRI;
Implement novel methods to assess tumor response based on diffusion and perfusion;
Apply new knowledge to optimize MRI in assessment of tumor response clinically; and
Describe the role of whole body MRI in oncology.
