ESMPE Quantitative MRI: basic principles, optimization, quality assurance

, Italy

EFOMP in collaboration with the Italian Association of Medical Physics (AIFM) would like to invite you to the next ESMPE on 24th-26th October 2024.

MRI is unquestionably the most complex but also the richest and most versatile imaging method. Although inherently quantitative, MRI has been used largely as a qualitative imaging technique, with the main limitation being the subjective nature of the results. An increasing number of diagnostic problems in clinical medicine require a quantitative assessment of tissue structure, physiology and function, which demand in-depth and systematic training.

This course is addressed at medical physicists who seek a general overview of the basic principles of MR imaging, from signal generation to image reconstruction, with a special focus on optimization and quantification techniques. Technological advances in hardware as well as in software will be presented, including advanced MR sequences used in clinical routine and artifact management. The importance of standardization in clinical quantitative MRI will be underlined and an emphasis will be placed on quality assurance and multicenter comparison, including safety aspects.

This two-and-half day event will be accredited by EBAMP (European Board of Accreditation for Medical Physics) and is intended for practicing clinical Medical Physicists who are involved in clinal MRI.

ESMPE have decided this event to be in a hybrid format. All talks will be given their on-site in Milan but participants can choose to attend the school on-site (limited number of participants) or online.
