Multinuclear Imaging & Spectroscopy: Electrolytes (Sodium & Beyond)
Sunrise Session

ORGANIZERS: Ronald Ouwerkerk, Wolfgang Bogner

Monday, 13 May 2019
  07:00 - 08:00 Moderators:  Rob Stobbe

Skill Level: Basic to Advanced

Session Number: S-M-05

This is the first course of a four-part sunrise educational series on multi-nuclear imaging and spectroscopy. This session will first review the existing MR imaging methods for 23Na-MRI and nuclei with similar MR properties such as 39K and 35Cl that are available for (clinical) research. It will then introduce emerging (clinical) applications to study cell membrane potentials and tissue integrity in healthy tissue, pathologic states, and as a way to monitor treatment response.

Target Audience
MR physicists and clinicians working with 23Na-MRI or planning to work with 23Na-MRI or similar nuclei.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the challenges of 23Na-MRI data acquisition;
- Recall a number of different 23Na-MRI acquisition schemes;
- Explain the pros and cons of various acquisition schemes; and
- Choose an acquisition scheme to suit a specific application.
