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.

Target Audience
Trainees, technologists and clinicians desiring a broad-scope view of current and emerging techniques for single-subject analysis.

Educational Objectives
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.

MR/PET Clinical Applications
Timothy Shepherd
This presentation will introduce the underlying concepts and motivations for the clinical use of FDG PET-MRI, then demonstrate its immediate impact for imaging in dementia and epilepsy.
