Thursday, 16 May 2019
Room 516AB  07:00 - 08:00 Moderators:  Lorenzo Mannelli, Alan McMillan

Skill Level: Basic to Advanced

Session Number: S-TH-01

In this session, we will describe the principal applications of lung MRI including advanced pulse sequences capable of visualizing lung anatomy and function. In addition, the session will provide an overview of the the current state of the art PET/MRI including emerging advances in technology and cutting-edge applications in the body.

Target Audience
Clinicians and researchers interested in lung MRI and PET/MRI.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe state-of-the-art lung MRI methods;
- Identify current applications in lung MRI;
- Describe state of the art PET/MRI technologies; and
- Identity emerging applications of PET/MRI.

The goal of this educational session is to provide understanding of the challenges and opportunities in lung MRI, state-of-the-art lung MRI methods, and new approaches in development.  It will cover specialized pulse sequences and image reconstruction for 1H MRI, inhaled gas methods, and methods to provide functional measurements of lung perfusion, ventilation, and mechanics.

The recent advent of positron emission tomography (PET) hybridized to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with either sophisticated fiducials and a universal table, a consecutive design, or a novel simultaneous design, has allowed for the marriage of the present most sophisticated means of performing molecular imaging, with the most robust imaging modality.  As the hybrid, simultaneous PET-MRI imaging system is the most technologically sophisticated, and is the instrument with which both authors have over
