Advances in MR Imaging

May 9-10, 2019; Bucharest/Romania
Course informationThe course is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in MR imaging and will focus on the most successful technical consideration to acquire high-quality images in brain, cardiac and musculoskeletal exams. It will further focus on the evaluation of updated diagnostic findings, stratifying criteria and grading principles as well as treatment effects assessment. The clinical impact of MR imaging in glioblastoma, stroke, neurodegenerative diseases, myocardial, valvular and pericardial abnormalities, synovium, cartilage and bone changes will be presented. A special focus will be devoted to the applications of the latest technical advances and newer guidelines for these situations. Internationally renowned experts will ensure a high-quality teaching programme combining plenary lectures and workshops allowing for interactive case discussion.

Learning objectives
  • to present an update on the current MR imaging protocols used in patients with brain, cardiac and musculoskeletal diseases for the detection and characterisation of abnormalities and entities
  • to learn about key imaging features relevant to clinical decision-making process in these patients
  • to discuss the clinical relevance of early disease detection and the necessity of accurate grading and classifying disorders
  • to evaluate appropriate therapy-planning and the role of imaging in therapy monitoring and evaluation of treatment
