ISMRM 23rd Annual Meeting & Exhibition 30 May - 05 June 2015 Toronto, Ontario, Canada

SUNRISE EDUCATIONAL COURSE
Quantitative Musculoskeletal Imaging: Structure & Function
SKILL LEVEL: Advanced
ORGANIZERS: Garry E. Gold, M.D., Richard Kijowski, M.D., William B. Morrison, M.D., & Ravinder R. Regatte, Ph.D.
Wednesday, 03 June 2015
 
OVERVIEW
This series of sunrise sessions will address issues related to bone, muscle and cartilage structure as well as their interfaces. Lecturers will discuss basic physics and clinical applications. The lectures will review and discuss the technical aspects including basic physics, implementation of pulse sequence and potential clinical applications of quantitative MRI methods.
 
TARGET AUDIENCE
Radiologists and physicists who perform clinical imaging and/or research on muscle structure, function and diseases using advanced techniques.
 
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

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

  • Technical and clinical applications of skeletal muscle structure;
  • Identify the structural and biochemical alterations with regard to muscle function to muscle diseases;
  • Recognize the role of advanced muscle imaging for assessment of muscle function; and
  • Implement and evaluate muscle structure, function, and disease using advanced imaging techniques.
