Physics Just the Basics Series #07 - LGE Methods and Principles


Peter Kellman, Senior Scientist in the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute at NIH, will discuss the basic principles of late gadolinium enhancement imaging including the mechanism of late enhancement in acute and chronic myocardial infarction imaging due to kinetics of gadolinium clearance and a description of methods for inversion recovery imaging. The presentation will cover commonly used protocols, nulling of normal myocardium, artifact mechanisms, and blood pool contrast. The presentation will include advanced topics of free-breathing imaging, lipomatous metaplasia and fat water separated late enhancement, imaging patients with devices, and dark blood late enhancement.



In response to feedback provided by the global CMR community, the SCMR Education Committee is proud to announce a pilot MRI physics webinar series,  SCMR WEBINAR SERIES: PHYSICS JUST THE BASICS. Radiology trainees, CMR imaging trainees, those new to CMR, MRI technologists, and anyone else who has an interest in learning the simple fundamental concepts of how MRI works should participate in the webinar.  

The basic format of the webinar will consististed of a didactic lecture for 30-45”, followed by a question and answer period for the remainder of the hour.  The difficulty level of the physics presented will be targeted toward clinicians.
