Advanced MSK MRI Acquisition & Post-Processing: Fat Suppression & Quantification
Sunrise Session

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

Wednesday, 15 May 2019
Room 516C-E  07:00 - 08:00 Moderators:  Guido Buonincontri, Jin Yamamura

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Session Number: S-W-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.



  Fat Suppression & Quantification: Friend or Foe?: Research Perspective

Fat plays an important role in MSK research, both in terms of fat suppression as well as in quantification of the fat content. The main reason to suppress fat in MSK research is because it hampers the quantitative measurement of relaxation times and diffusion coefficients and to avoid image distortions, while quantitative fat imaging can facilitate comparative studies across groups, help in the understanding of pathophysiology, and determine the efficacy of therapies and interventions by capturing temporal changes. This talk will explore what the advantages and disadvantages are of both approaches and highlight recent research advances.
