Hyperpolarized MR Spectroscopic Imaging
Weekend Course

ORGANIZERS: Yi-Fen Yen, Catherine Hines, Damian Tyler, Malgorzata Marjanska

 
Saturday, 11 May 2019
  13:30 - 16:40 Moderators:  Matthew Rosen, Mor Mishkovsky

Skill Level: Basic to Intermediate

Session Number: WE-11

Overview
This course will introduce the techniques and in vivo applications of optical pumping, dynamic nuclear polarization, and parahydrogen-based hyperpolarization methods. Lectures will cover the fundamental principles, hardware, experimental set up, acquisition strategies, and research study designs.

Target Audience
Physicists, engineers, and clinical scientists interested in the nuts and bolts of hyperpolarized MR spectroscopic imaging, in vivo applications, and potential for clinical translation.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Categorize three basic hyperpolarization techniques;
- Name major hardware required for a hyperpolarized MRSI study;
- Describe basic MRSI methods; and
- Design a hyperpolarized MRSI animal study.
