ISMRM Workshop on Fat-Water Separation: Insights, Applications & Progress in MRI (WS 14)
Venue: Hotel Maya
|Event Date/Time: Feb 19, 2012||End Date/Time: Feb 22, 2012|
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together internationally-recognized clinicians and researchers to review insights, progress, and findings in fat suppression and fat-water MRI over the past 30 years. It will cover the latest discoveries in qualitative fat-water separation and quantitative fat methodologies. Attendees will collectively identify unsolved challenges and applications that need to be further addressed, as well as discuss appropriate validation techniques, implementation considerations, and the consistent use and reporting of methodology and fat metrics in literature. The workshop will integrate educational presentations encompassing a wide array of technical and clinical topics. A poster session will promote interaction amongst young and established investigators. Moderated sessions will comprehensively cover mathematical theory, performance limits, and data reconstruction algorithms of fat-water imaging, as well as highlight new diagnostic applications and future research opportunities.
