2nd edition of Advanced MRI In Neuro-Oncology
Details of the 2nd edition of Advanced MRI In Neuro-Oncology (AMRINO) have been announced. The event, led by experienced Clinical Neuroradiologists and MRI Clinical Scientists, embraces the role of MRI in Neuro-Oncology.
Duration: 2 days
Dates: Friday 30th June – Saturday 1st July 2017
Venue: Imperial Hotel, London WC1B 5BB
The material will be exclusively centred on advanced MRI application techniques in Neuro-Oncology, the teaching sessions will be accompanied by interactive discussions with case material, and the hands-on workshops will familiarise the users with the advanced MRI post-processing.
Short lectures will introduce you to the main advanced MRI modalities (MR Spectroscopy, MR Perfusion Imaging, Diffusion-weighted and Diffusion Tensor Imaging, and functional MRI including task-based and resting-state) for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes (imaging-guided neurosurgery, intraoperative MRI, imaging-guided radiotherapy) in Neuro-Oncology laying the groundwork for clinically-orientated lectures, devoted to review the indications for advanced MRI and clarify the interpretation of the findings.
The attendees can participate in hands-on sessions using a state-of-the-art imaging platform (OleaSphere, Olea Medical) in order to get familiar with the techniques in clinical routine or to remedy perceived weaknesses. You may also bring and discuss your challenging cases.
