Upon completion of the course, participates should be able to:
* Discuss gadolinium-based MR contrast agent use, including mechanism of action, distribution and time versus concentration considerations.
* Identify numerous MR imaging artifacts, how to recognize them, and how to decrease or eliminate them.
* Describe the unique advantages and clinical applicability of utilizing such MR pulse sequences as inversion recovery (STIR, FLAIR) diffusion weighted imaging, perfusion weighted imaging, and Propeller MR imaging.
* Identify various types of MR angiographic sequences and their specific advantages, limitations and artifacts.
* Introduce the concepts underlying magnetic resonance spectroscopy and spectroscopic imaging and demonstrate how these are clinically applied in routine patient care settings.
