27th ISMRM Annual Meeting • 11-16 May 2019 • Montréal, QC, Canada
|Weekend Educational Session
ORGANIZERS: Cornelia Laule, Alex MacKay
Saturday, 11 May 2019
Skill Level: Basic to Intermediate
Session Number: WE-12
The goal of this course is to introduce the field of myelin imaging. The session will begin with an overview of the role of myelin in normal brain function and clinical value of being able to image myelin. Each of the next 7 presentations will cover different approaches to imaging myelin.
Clinicians who would like to be able to monitor myelin in demyelinating diseases and acquired injuries; neuroscientists who are interested in understanding myelin in normal brain function and want to learn what imaging techniques are available to measure myelin; and physicists and engineers who want to learn how to image myelin.
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- List the pros and cons of the available MR techniques for measuring myelin;
- Describe how inhomogeneity in B0 and B1 influence the different myelin imaging techniques;
- Explain how changes in CNS environment due to non-myelin pathology influence the different myelin imaging techniques; and
- Identify which of the available MR techniques for measuring myelin is most appropriate for each participant's application.
