Quantitative MRI: Relaxometry
Sunrise Session

ORGANIZERS: J. Rebelo Marques, Sebastian Kozerke, Ileana Hancu

Monday, 13 May 2019
  07:00 - 08:00 Moderators:  J. Rebelo Marques

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Session Number: S-M-08

Extend the understanding of the MR signal evolution beyond the simple phenemenological single-pool relaxation models. 

During this educational course, the role of tissue physical properties such as magnetic susceptibility and electric conductivity and how they affect imaging and relaxation processes will be addressed. Furthermore, the role of diffusion, perfusion, flow in the observed signal and how they can be encoded and measured in MRI will be discussed.

Target Audience
Scientists who are interested in developing/improving quantitative MR approaches.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Develop MR pulse sequence design to implement practical encoding approaches of the various physical properties of tissues;
- Apply decoding equation/reconstruction to calculate tissue magnetic susceptibility, electrical conductivity, relaxation, diffusion, perfusion, flow; and
- Compare various software solutions for data reconstruction/processing.
