Sunrise Session

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

Thursday, 16 May 2019
Room 516C-E  07:00 - 08:00 Moderators:  Mikko Nissi, Akshay Chaudhari

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Session Number: S-TH-06

These four sessions will cover advanced MR imaging and MRI post-processing of the musculoskeletal system including machine learning, rapid imaging, fat suppression and quantification, and MR fingerprinting. Both a research and clinical perspective on each topic will be presented.

Target Audience
Scientists and clinicians interested in applying new MR or post-processing techniques for research or clinical applications.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Describe the advanced imaging or post-processing technique discussed in the session;
- Explain how the technique discussed has been applied in the musculoskeletal research; and
- Describe how the technique might be used clinically.



  Quantitative Imaging: MR Fingerprinting: Research Perspective

Young Han Lee
Quantitative rapid imaging has been an area of focus in the field of MRI. Quantitative MRI can provide data that can be used as imaging biomarkers for better characterization of tissue pathology, follow-up, patient-specific management, prognosis, and proper therapy. Conventional approaches are relatively time-consuming and typically measure only one tissue property at a time. Parallel imaging, compressed sensing, synthetic imaging, and MR fingerprinting (MRF) are current solutions to accelerate MRI data acquisition. Recent innovations and research aspects of rapid and quantitative MRI in musculoskeletal imaging will be presented with the aim of understanding synthetic and MRF imaging.  

  Quantitative Imaging: MR Fingerprinting: Clinical Perspective
Riccardo Lattanzi
Morphologic MRI can detect only macroscopic changes associated with advanced cartilage lesions. While quantitative MR parameters can enable early diagnosis, scan time limitations, inconsistency between measurements and unsettled diagnostic interpretation have prevented extensive clinical validation, restricting their use to research settings. Magnetic resonance fingerprinting provides robust and reliable reconstruction of multiple parameters from a single, fast MR acquisition, which could enable to translate quantitative imaging into clinical practice.
