Lectures on MR - Acquisition Strategies for Hyperpolarised Spin Systems: Spectral, Spatial and Temporal

Society/Institution: ESMRMB
Date: 18.09.2019 - 20.09.2019
Venue: GE Healthcare
City: Garching by Munich
Country: Germany
Language(s): English
Main Topic: MR physics
Expected number of participants: less than 50
Description: Imaging of hyperpolarised substances is an emerging field with widespread applications, such as detecting metabolism via 13C labelled compounds or lung function via 129Xe gas. It differs from traditional thermally polarised MRI mainly by time and sensitivity considerations, as the hyperpolarised state is non-recoverably disappearing with T1 relaxation and excitation of magnetisation. Goal of the course is to familiarise the participants with these special constraints for imaging and teach MRI methods for imaging, reconstruction and quantification of hyperpolarised spins. Furthermore, introductions are given into the basic X-nuclei MRI hardware, hyperpolarisation methods, underlying biology and other relevant aspects in this context.
