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

Neuroimaging: Dementia
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced
ORGANIZERS: Jonathan H. Gillard, M.D., FRCR, MBA & Howard A. Rowley, M.D.
Wednesday, 03 June 2015
The use of imaging in the diagnosis of dementias is complex, most volumetric changes happening later in the disease. This course will explain the main phenotypes of dementia and the contributions that MR can make in the diagnosis and monitoring of these complex diseases. This course will describe the spectrum of changes seen in dementias initially from a clinical perspective and then from an MR imaging perspective exploring the added value of multiparametric MR.
Physicists and clinicians involved in the evaluation and care of dementia.

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

  • Illustrate the spectrum of the dementias from a clinical and pathological perspective;
  • Diagnose different dementias based on conventional MR sequences; and
  • Assess the added value of multiparametric MRI in the setting of dementia.
