Functional & Dynamic MR Imaging of Peripheral Joints & Spine
Weekday Course

ORGANIZERS: Riccardo Lattanzi, Jung-Ah Choi, Miika Nieminen, Jan Fritz, Edwin Oei

Monday, 13 May 2019
  16:00 - 18:00 Moderators:  Jan Fritz, Thomas Baum

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Session Number: M-09

Our joints facilitate movement, so why do we most often image them statically in a relaxed position? In this session, we will explore topics how MRI is used to assess joint mechanics during motion and under load, how prospective motion correction can be used to improve loaded images and potential clinical applications of functional and dynamic techniques.

Target Audience
Scientists and clinicians interested in biomechanics, functional imaging, and dynamic imaging.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe the MRI techniques used for dynamic imaging of joints;
- List the quantitative MRI measurements used to describe tissue changes under load; and
- Summarize which functional and dynamic MRI techniques have been used to study or diagnose clinical problems.
