Lectures on MR - Simultaneous multi-slice/multiband imaging

Society/Institution: ESMRMB
Date: 09.04.2018 - 11.04.2018
Venue: Maastricht University
City: Maastricht
Country: Netherlands
Language(s): English
Main Topic: Simultaneous multi-slice/multiband imaging
Expected number of participants: less than 50
Description: The course on Simultaneous multi-slice/multiband imaging will provide participants with a solid grounding in one of the most exciting developments of recent years. Simultaneous multi-slice/multiband imaging provides the ability to vastly accelerate data acquisition by the simultaneous acquisition of multiple slices. The course will cover the basic concepts of simultaneous multi-slice excitation, refocusing and inversion for conventional and adiabatic radio frequency pulses. It will show how the application of these pulses can be limited by both peak RF-voltage and power deposition, and describe strategies for circumventing both of these limitations. Different methods of data reconstruction will be described, in particular in conjunction with the use of (blipped) CAIPIRINHA sampling. The limitations of combined simultaneous multi-slice imaging and in-plane acceleration will be presented. Finally, examples of current and potential future applications will be examined, including the extension of SMS RF pulse design to parallel transmission.
