The webinar "State of the Art in MRI Pediatric Brain Perfusion Imaging" educates participants about the state of the art clinical and emerging translational perfusion RM methods with utilization in pediatric neuroimaging. It is part of the Imaging Technology News Webinar Series and is supported by an educational grant from Philips Healthcare.
The webinar took place Dec. 9, 2014. Register to access the archive version of the webinar. Therev is no CME credit available for thje archive version.
Statement of Purpose/Need:
To educate participants in the state of the art clinical and emerging translational perfusion RM methods with utilization in pediatric neuroimaging.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Identify the current perfusion neuroimaging techniques utilized in pediatrics
• Describe the benefits, strengths and challenges of the various perfusion techniques
• Acquire the practical technical knowledge to translate the described techniques into their clinical practices
• Discuss the emerging perfusion techniques with high potential for early translation to clinical practice
• Define the adjustable patient and imaging specific parameters to successfully perform optimal perfusion imaging studies
This activity intended for radiologists and MRI technologists.
