The goal of this lecture is to provide a practical overview of gadolinium contrast use in MRI. Neuroradiology protocols will be used to illustrate optimal imaging for specific applications tailored to individual patients.
This CME/CE dinner program is intended for healthcare professionals including Physicians, Technologists, Facility Managers, Researchers, and others.
Describe how gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) work in MRI
Recognize benefits and clinical impact of choosing high relaxivity GBCAs
Learn how to optimize Neuro MRI protocols
