Contrast by Body Part: How & Why?
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate
ORGANIZERS: Brian A. Hargreaves, Ph.D. & Manojkumar Saranathan, Ph.D.
Tuesday, 02 June 2015
Each day, experts in imaging a specific body part will describe how and why particular sequences are used in that region of the body so that knowledge can be transferred to those who image other body parts.
Attendees, including medical physicists, familiar with basic imaging techniques for a subspecialty or body part who are looking to learn from how clinical imaging is performed in other subspecialties, and actively improve their protocols using concepts.

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Explain basic technical challenges to imaging in different body areas;
  • Enumerate common clinical questions for imaging different body areas; and
  • Adapt one new imaging method to his/her imaging area.
