This webinar titled “MRI GBCAs and the future in Pediatrics: Stability & Safety” discusses the value of high relaxivity GBCAs to help optimize pediatric MR exams (faster and easier) yielding exquisite image detail and multi-parametric characterization of anatomy and function. In addition, we will discuss the properties of available GBCAs in the selection of MR contrast agents approved for use in neuroradiology. The purpose of this webinar is to provide physicians, technologists, and other healthcare professionals with current clinical data to make informed decisions in their clinical settings.
1. Describe the properties of available GBCAs and how they selectively matter in the selection of an MR contrast agent in pediatric MRI
2. Discuss the value of high relaxivity in pediatric imaging
3. Explore high relaxivity GBCA and how they can help in the most difficult diagnostic situations and aid in treatment planning
4. Understand benefits of greater stability and low dose in terms of reduced Gd exposure especially in pediatric populations requiring multiple scans over their lifetime
5. Discuss the future of pediatric MRI: new technology (e.g., A.I.) and new contrast agents.
The content of this CE webinar is intended for healthcare professionals including Technologists, Radiologic and Imaging Nurses, Facility Managers, Researchers, and others.
