ISMRM 25th Annual Meeting & Exhibition • 22-27 April 2017 • Honolulu, HI, USA
|Sunrise Educational Session: Individualized Brain MRI: Metabolic Imaging|
ORGANIZERS: Christopher P. Hess, M.D., Ph.D.
Thursday, 27 April 2017
Skill Level: Basic to Intermediate
Slack Channel: #e_neuro
Session Number: STh06
This three-part series of Neuro Sunrise sessions will focus on "individualized brain MRI." Each session provides a focused review suitable for a broad audience on one widely-used or emerging area of Neuroimaging. This specific sunrise course is targeted to researchers and clinicians interested in understanding and developing metabolic MRI methods, specifically MR/PET and emerging spectroscopic methods for detecting new metabolites.
Trainees, technologists and clinicians desiring a broad-scope view of current and emerging techniques for single-subject analysis.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Provide examples of current techniques used for metabolic imaging;
-List emerging radiopharmaceuticals being used for MR/PET and novel metabolites such as GABA and 2-HG; and
-Summarize strengths and shortcomings of current metabolic markers of brain disease.
