Joint Annual Meeting ISMRM-ESMRMB 2014 10-16 May 2014 Milan, Italy

Artifact Gameshow: Ciao Artefatti!
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced
ORGANIZERS: Charlie McKenzie, Ph.D. & Alexey Samsonov, Ph.D.
Thursday, 15 May 2014
This course addresses a skill sets gap in identifying and debugging the sources of artifacts in MRI. There will be a focus on artifacts that are specific to imaging at high field strengths and artifacts that have different appearances at low field and high field. The course provides an interactive means for rapidly identifying effect and cause of image artifacts.
This course has been designed for trainees, MRI technologists and practicing radiologists.

As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:

  • Classify and evaluate principle categories of artifacts;
  • Identify sources of commonly encountered artifacts and implement methods to avoid them; and
  • Recommend further tests for problem solving and troubleshooting artifacts.


Moderators: Charles A. McKenzie, Ph.D., Alexey Samsonov, Ph.D. & Nicole E. Seiberlich, Ph.D.
