Conference Summary

New Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Techniques for Imaging Cartilage is organized by Opus Medicus, Inc. and will be held from Jul 24, 2018 - Jul 24, 2021.

The target audience for this medical event is Radiologists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Course Description:
This course covers new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based techniques that exploit spin dynamics between endogenous macromolecules of cartilage. These include T1-rho and T2 relaxometry, Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST), Magnetization Transfer (MT), all proton-based MRI techniques, and sodium MRI. Most of these techniques have been developed to specifically detect the glycosaminoglycan (GAG) component of cartilage, which is the more important element due to the ostensibly limited contribution of collagen to the initiating steps of osteoarthritis (OA). The salient features of these methods are described with a limited literature review. References are provided to specialized reviews on each topic covered.

Conference Objectives are :
• T1-rho relaxometry
• T2 relaxometry
• Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST)
• Magnetization Transfer (MT)
• Sodium MRI

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
