University of Michigan Workshop on Arterial Spin Labeling MRI:
Technical Updates and Clinical Experience
March 9-10, 2019
Kahn Auditorium, Biomedical Sciences Research Building
University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, MI, USA
Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) has become a mainstream technique to collect quantitative perfusion images since the consensus article in 2015 (Magnetic resonance in medicine, 73(1), 102-116). Since then, innovative ASL developments have been unrelenting, both in terms of technical consideration and clinical translation.
This weekend workshop is intended for the community of users and developers of ASL MRI techniques to network, share new findings, discuss developments & experience, with the intent of mapping out further technical recommendations for clinical translation. Among other topics, we will focus on sharing our experience and learning from each other about the following:
· Do different types of pathology require custom parameters?
MRI Engineers/Physicists working on the area of arterial spin labeling and perfusion imaging.
Neuroscientists using ASL methods to examine brain function
Clinicians interested in MRI vascular and perfusion imaging
Abstract submission will be open between November 1, 2018 and January 10, 2019.
