|Sunrise Educational Session: Contrast Mechanisms in MSK Imaging|
ORGANIZERS: Jenny T. Bencardino, M.D., Eric Y. Chang, M.D., Christine Chung, M.D. & Philip Robinson, M.D.
Monday, 24 April 2017
Skill Level: Advanced
Slack Channel: #e_msk
Session Number: SM02
This course will provide an in-depth discussion on contrast mechanisms in musculoskeletal MR imaging. Technical concepts underpinning the large variety of contrast mechanisms that are well established or emerging will be discussed. Clinical applicability for imaging normal and abnormal tissues and conditions will be featured.
Radiologists and Physicists
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Describe the mechanism of three endogenous contrasts used in clinical imaging;
-Identify the effects of tissue anisotropy on relaxation properties; and
-Apply understanding of mechanism of image contrast in musculoskeletal MRI to clinical and translational research applications.
