Overview & Program

Workshop Overview

Quantitative renal MRI has the potential to revolutionize the management of renal disease by enabling the assessment of morphological, microstructural, hemodynamic, and metabolic changes in a single non-invasive exam. This has led to a growing excitement within a highly interdisciplinary community of nephrologists, radiologists, surgeons, physicists, computer scientists, radiographers, pathologists, physiologists, drug developers, and imaging CRO's.

In the past decade, the field of renal MRI has matured significantly as evidence by the series of bi-annual international meetings (renalmri.org/action/16), mounting exposure in the nephrology literature and meetings, an ever-increasing number of larger clinical studies and drug trials with MRI-based endpoints, and regulatory qualification and commercial availability of renal imaging biomarkers.

The ISMRM-PARENCHIMA Workshop on Kidney MRI Biomarkers will extend this trajectory as the fourth international meeting on renal MRI and will focus on mapping out the pathway to clinical adoption of MR biomarkers in renal disease. The symposium is designed to bring together scientists and clinicians from several disciplines in a unique attempt to shape the future of renal functional imaging. It will include an update on clinical trials results and an overview of current barriers for wider dissemination and adoption, and it will provide an outline of cutting-edge novel clinical and pre-clinical renal imaging techniques and their potential impact on clinical management.

The meeting is anticipated to help accelerate the study of these techniques and promote multinational, multi-institutional translational research. The program will feature invited scientific presentations from experts in technical innovation and clinical practice, as well as provide an opportunity for students, trainees, and post-doctoral fellows to showcase their work.

Target Audience: The workshop is designed to attract clinical scientists and clinicians from radiology, nephrology, physiology, and related fields, as well as basic scientists and experts in imaging sciences and physics. It will also provide an opportunity for students, trainees, and post-doctoral fellows to learn about these techniques, network, and showcase their work.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the potential clinical utility of MRI biomarkers;
  • Describe advancements in clinical biomarker development;
  • Identify opportunities for targeted research and clinical adoption of renal biomarkers;
  • Identify current barriers for widespread dissemination of renal MRI biomarkers;
  • Identify best practices for technique validation and clinical translation; and
  • Recognize the role and challenges of segmentation, analysis, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in renal MR imaging.
