School of MRI - Clinical fMRI & DTI - Theory and Practice

Society/Institution: European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology - ESMRMB
Date: 15.06.2017 - 17.06.2017
Venue: CINTESIS FMUP/Center for Health Technology and Services Research
City: Porto
Country: Portugal
Language(s): English
Main Topic: Clinical fMRI & DTI - Theory and Practice
Expected number of participants: 50 - 100
Type of course: School of MRI
Description: The aim of this course is to convey in-depth knowledge about functional MR imaging (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), with a focus on clinical practice. These advanced MR neuroimaging techniques are increasingly applied to the study of the healthy and diseased human brain and provide information about the brain’s activity and its connections. The course will offer an overview of present methodologies, an update about functional anatomy and an overview of clinical as well as some research applications. These topics are taught using a mixture of lectures and small group exercises. In addition, a practical session on a 3T MR system performing fMRI studies in healthy volunteers complements the taught elements of the course. Finally, special attention is given to the (clinical) interpretation of specific cases, including results from both routine presurgical fMRI examinations and more advanced fMRI (group) studies. We are happy to welcome you to this course in Porto.
