ISMRM-SMRT Joint Forum: Chasing Speed & Spatial Resolution: At What Point Is Enough?
Weekday Course

ORGANIZERS: Claire Mulcahy, Douglas Noll

 
Monday, 13 May 2019
  08:15 - 10:15 Moderators:  Douglas Noll

Skill Level: Basic to Intermediate

Session Number: M-02

Overview
In both the clinical and research MRI environments, there is ever-increasing pressure to reduce imaging times whilst improving diagnostic & research information. Over the past two decades, there has been considerable focus on techniques to reduce scan times, improve image resolution, and develop new sequences that facilitate both faster and higher resolution scanning.

The aim of this forum is to initiate a discussion that asks: Is there a point at which the diagnostic capability/usefulness of MRI data is not improved by higher resolution and faster acquired images? The anatomical focus of the forum is neuro-imaging, where a scientist, radiographer/technologist, radiologist, and neurosurgeon will present their professional perspectives.

Target Audience
Radiologists and radiographers/technologists will benefit most from this forum, learning about the needs for imaging speed and spatial resolution. Scientists and trainees interested in clinical needs will also benefit.



Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Identify up-to-date fast MR imaging techniques (including acquisition technology and reduced scanning protocols);
- Articulate the benefits of shorter MR examination times;
- Evaluate any advantages and disadvantages of acquiring increased spatial resolution; and
- Identify the different goals in MRI data acquisition for scientists, clinicians, and radiographers/technologists.
