Course Overview
Functional imaging techniques are assuming an increasingly important role in the non-invasive assessment of physiological tissue processes in vivo as imaging biomarkers of various pathological conditions. Particularly DCE imaging is gradually becoming part of clinical imaging examinations and many research protocols using MRI, CT and contrast-enhanced ultrasound. However, the large array of available acquisition protocols and analysing techniques provide a source of ongoing inconsistency.
Profound knowledge and understanding regarding the basics of tissue microcirculation and contrast agent kinetics within the tissues as well as the impact on the different imaging modalities (MRI, CT or US) and analysis tools are therefore needed in the training of imaging experts in state-of-the-art functional imaging techniques .
This hands-on workshop aims to provide the technical basis of DCE imaging, training imaging experts in the selection of adequate DCE imaging protocols, various analysis methods and anticipation of potential pitfalls. Each modality-based session will also feature tutored hands-on processing of real clinical cases using different dedicated software tools to maximize learning benefits in an interactive educational setting.
