Course Description and Intended Audience
Mayo Clinic Advanced Body MRI is intended to give radiologists the opportunity to expand their knowledge about Body MRI. The course will highlight state of the art MR techniques for musculoskeletal, abdominal, cardiovascular, and breast imaging, and include updates on some related topics such as PET/MRI, MRI for radiation therapy planning, and interventional MRI. The course is intended to be primarily practical rather than theoretical in nature, and the faculty will be composed mostly of practicing radiologists. On completing the course, attendees should feel more comfortable implementing and interpreting some of these techniques in their practice. The course would be ideal for those looking to expand or offer new clinical MRI services or improve confidence in diagnosis with some of the newer MRI techniques and pulse sequences.
