Symposium & Hands-on sessions: Multimodal Imaging of Brain Tumors

21st May 2016, Bruges, BE

Registrations are closed

You are invited

This year, the BSNR steps forward to offer you hands-on sessions joined with the symposium. The topic is currently in the core of therapeutic as well as medical imaging development and research. These last years, many efforts have been made to increase the diagnostic accuracy, presurgical planning and follow-up of brain tumors, by improving the integration of multiple imaging modalities such as Diffusion Tensor imaging (DTI), Spectroscopy, Perfusion, Functional imaging and Positron Emission Tomography (PET)-MR. The symposium will give you the opportunity to learn how to perform acquisitions, to post-process images, to render the results and interpret them, and, ultimately, how to use multimodal images to define treatment strategies. In addition, the workshops will allow you to handle the mouse and post-process the images from advanced MR techniques on dedicated workstations.
