The ASNR 54th Annual Meeting is the premier Neuroradiology meeting in the world. The target audience includes:
Neuroradiologists in practice and research
General radiologists who read Neuroradiology studies
Young professionals and trainees
Brain, Spine, and Head and Neck imaging Scientists
Clinicians from related disciplines
About This Module:
This module is composed of four parts:
Proton MR Spectroscopy Peter B. Barker, D.Phil
Functional MRI Pre-Treatment Planning for Brain Tumor: Pitfalls and Progress Kirk M. Welker, MD
Treatment Response from Pseudoprogression Jerrold Boxerman, MD, PhD
Diffusivity and Genomics: Current Thoughts and Metrics Whitney B. Pope, MD, PhD
Upon completion of this module, participants should be able to:
Part I:Proton MR Spectroscopy Peter B. Barker, D.Phil
Identify markers of tumors in MR spectroscopy; describe potential uses of MRS in diagnosis, radiotherapy planning and treatment monitoring.
Part II:Functional MRI Pre-Treatment Planning for Brain Tumor: Pitfalls and Progress Kirk M. Welker, MD
Describe the role and uses of fMRI for brain tumor presurgical planning, with particular attention to language mapping. List the benefits and pitfalls of fMRI in this context.
Part III:Treatment Response from Pseudoprogression Jerrold Boxerman, MD, PhD
Evaluate the response of gliomas to treatment via DSC-MRI of cerebral blood volume; distinguish between pseudoprogression and progressive disease; distinguish between pseudoresponse and true response.
Part IV:Diffusivity and Genomics: Current Thoughts and Metrics Whitney B. Pope, MD, PhD
Define the relationship between molecular markers of malignancy and qualitative and quantitative glioma image data; recognize the potential and limitations of genomic-imaging (radiogenomic) correlation for understanding glioma biology.
