Tuesday, 8 May 2012

This two-hour course will focus on state-of-art liver imaging. Specific lectures will address in detail how to:
Use different liver-specific contrast agents in characterization of focal liver lesions;
Detect cancer in difficult liver;
Evaluate diffuse liver disease; and
Use MRI in assessment of patients before and after liver transplantation.
Upon completion of this course participants should be able to:
Describe the use of different liver specific contrast agents and their added value in characterization of focal lesions;
Explain the use of MRI in evaluation of diffuse liver disease and malignant liver lesions; and
Recognize the role of MRI in evaluation of patients before and after liver transplantation.
This course is designed for radiologists, MR technologists and clinical support scientists who wish to improve the use of MRI in their practice and to know how evolving MRI techniques can aid in clinical problem solving in the body and impact individual patient care.
