|Sunrise Educational Session: The Consequence of Inter-Compartmental Water Exchange in the DCE-MRI Time-Course|
ORGANIZERS: Linda Knutsson, Ph.D. & Steven P. Sourbron, Ph.D.
Thursday, 27 April 2017
Skill Level: Intermediate
Slack Channel: #e_diff_perf_fmri
Session Number: STh05
This is a discussion session on the controversial topic of inter-compartmental water exchange in DCE-MRI, specifically the claim that encoded in the data is information on equilibrium water exchange kinetics in addition to contrast agent pharmacokinetics. Two experienced speakers will be asked to present their views on the topic in a 15-min pitch. This will be followed by a 20-min debate including the speakers, a moderator and the audience.
The session is targeted at basic scientists, biomedical engineers and clinicians interested in DCE-MRI of brain and body with a focus on perfusion, permeability, and metabolic aspects.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Distinguish the basic difference between the water-exchange and the tracer-exchange paradigm;
-Explain the conceptual arguments underpinning opposing views; and
-Demonstrate a good overview of the experimental evidence supporting either side of the argument.
