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 bone structure and biomechanics using advanced techniques.
 
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

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

  • Review the biochemical composition and structure of cortical and trabecular bone;
  • Identify the role of bone quality imaging techniques for assessment of bone microarchitecture and mechanics;
  • Realize the importance of biointerfaces in the musculoskeletal system; and
  • Implement and evaluate bone structure and biomechanics using advanced imaging techniques.
