In 1995, HMRI hosted its very first proton spectroscopy training course as a part of GE’s Masters Course series. From 1995 to 2009, HMRI trained hundreds of radiologists, physicians, scientists, physicists and technologists how to acquire, process and interpret spectroscopy data employed in research and clinical settings. Now, after 7 years, this training returns to HMRI! This time, however, HMRI will introduce applications of multi-nuclear spectroscopy including phosphorus and carbon, as well as focusing on applications and challenges of advanced proton spectroscopy techniques.
Invited experts from General Electric—along with current and former HMRI colleagues, Thao Tran, Alex Lin, PhD, and Stefan Bluml, PhD—will give presentations on clinical proton MRS in adult and pediatric populations, clinical multi-nuclear spectroscopy applications, and software and hardware requirements for MNS. There will also be hands-on sessions to demonstrate acquisition and processing methods. The former Director of HMRI’s Imaging Center, Dr. Brian Ross, MD, PhD, will give the plenary lecture: “MNS – Clinical Diagnosis & Beyond.”
HMRI is proud to bring this informative and well-received workshop back in continuation of its proton spectroscopy research programs and in connection to its multi-nuclear endeavors. Please contact Thao Tran at email@example.com to find out more and to register.
