Statement of Purpose/Need:


This webinar will explain the prevalence of MRI motion artifacts, outline the related financial and time burdens associated with patient motion and summarize solutions. 

 


Learning Objectives:


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


• Describe the prevalence of motion artifacts in a clinical population that can vary based on patient disposition and scanner parameters.

• Identify the financial and temporal opportunity costs associated with patient motion.

• Outline possible solution strategies to mitigate patient motion during clinical MRI scanning.


 


Intended Audience:


This webinar is intended for radiologists and MRI technologists.

 


Presenters:


Jalal B. Andre, M.D.

Assistant Professor, Radiology

University of Washington

Director of Neurological MRI, Radiology

Harborview Medical Center

Seattle, WA


Andre is director of neurological MRI and is the MRI safety officer at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He also serves as an assistant professor of radiology, with expertise in neuroradiology, at the University of Washington. His research interests include the clinical application of advanced MRI techniques in assessing brain vessel abnormalities and traumatic brain injury. Specifically, Andre’s focus involves measuring brain perfusion using arterial spin labeling, an MRI technique that can non-invasively measure blood delivery to the brain and requires no IV contrast. He is also involved in on-going clinical research using this technique to better understand vasospasm, a type of temporary vessel narrowing that can occur in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. The technique is also being explored to evaluate sports-related traumatic brain injury in adolescents.
