ISMRM Workshop on Dynamic MR Imaging & Spectroscopy of Psychiatric Illness
Venue: Sheraton Lisboa Hotel & Spa
|Event Date/Time: Sep 07, 2013||End Date/Time: Sep 10, 2013|
The Dynamic MR Imaging & Spectroscopy of Psychiatric Illness workshop will focus on both the underlying dynamic nature of psychiatric disease as it evolves throughout the lifetime of the patient, as well as the use of MRI and MRS techniques to study that evolution. A kickoff session, on the first night, will outline the developmental trajectories of several psychiatric diseases throughout the life of the patient. The next three days will include sessions discussing our MR tools (MRI and MRS) in the context of fluctuating psychiatric disease, evaluating two different timeframes: “semi-dynamic” where MRI/MRS is performed within subjects measuring changes occurring in weeks-to-years’ timeframe, and “dynamic” where MRI/MRS is performed in subjects measuring changes occurring in a minute-by-minute timeframe.
