Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) is an emerging MRI technology that enables in vivo quantitative assessment of tissue stiffness for applications ranging from staging of liver cirrhosis to characterizing the onset of Alzheimer's disease. In this course, the history and development of MRE will be overviewed, the key enabling technologies for MRE (e.g., pulse sequences, image processing methods) will be described, and several clinical applications where MRE has proven beneficial will be discussed in detail.
Physicists and Clinicians with a solid basic understanding of MRI who are interested in learning about the history, technical foundations, and clinical applications of MR elastography.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Describe the technical foundations of MR Elastography;
-Identify key clinical applications where MRE can be used; and
-Compare and contrast MRE to other quantitative MRI techniques.
