Basic Perfusion
Weekend Course

ORGANIZERS: Fernando Calamante, Hanzhang Lu, Jongho Lee

Sunday, 12 May 2019
  08:00 - 11:50 Moderators:  Hanzhang Lu, Shin-Lei Peng

Skill Level: Basic

Session Number: WE-17

This basic course will introduce the background on acquisition and analysis of arterial spin labeling (ASL), dynamic-susceptibility contrast (DSC) MRI, and dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI.

Target Audience
Basic scientists and clinicians interested in MRI methods to measure perfusion, permeability, tissue viability, and brain function.

Educational Objectives
As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:
- Identify the most suitable acquisition strategies for measuring perfusion using ASL and DSC-MRI and for measuring permeability using contrast agents;
- Describe the key issues in the extraction of physiological parameters from ASL, DSC, and DCE data; and 
- Describe how ASL principles can be used to measure physiological parameters beyond CBF.
