Imaging Without Gadolinium: ASL
Sunrise Session

ORGANIZERS: Pia Maly Sundgren, Elna-Marie Larsson, Robert Witte

 
Monday, 13 May 2019
  07:00 - 08:00 Moderator:  Robert Witte

Skill Level: Basic to Advanced

Session Number: S-M-07

Overview
The findings of gadolinium deposition in the brain of patients after previous injection of gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCA) have resulted in a growing interest in alternative techniques. This course deals with four MRI methods that potentially could replace contrast enhanced MRI: arterial spin labeling (ASL), chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) imaging, diffusion MRI, and synthetic MRI.

Target Audience
Trainees, radiologists, physicists, and basic scientists.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Explain the techniques and clinical use of ASL, CEST, diffusion MRI and synthetic MRI; and
- Describe how and when these methods potentially can replace GBCA administration.
