7T MRI Knee Imaging - Translational Research Towards Clinical Applications

Oct. 28, 2021 - 7T MRI Knee Imaging - Translational Research Towards Clinical Applications - a virtual workshop organized by University of Minnesota Clinical and Translational Science Institute and the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research

The virtual imaging workshop features an interactive format in which participants will experience real-time scanning of the knee at 7T and access to University of Minnesota imaging experts. The workshop will appeal to: 

  • Clinical investigators who currently use or anticipate using UHF imaging in their clinical practice
  • MRI technologists who are interested in learning about knee imaging strategies at 7T.
  • Imaging center administrators and personnel interested in supporting clinical 7T imaging initiatives at their institutions.

Virtual

Agenda

Introduction to ultra-high field MRI (historical, technical aspects)

  • Short history
  • Clinical versus Research mode - single versus multichannel transmit
  • Overview gains and challenges

Live demonstration of a 7T FDA approved clinical routine knee examination

  • Similarities and differences to 3T (description of coil design, patient positioning, sequences, etc.)

What are the gains at 7T when compared to 3T: Increased SNR and how can we utilize it and what is its clinical relevance?

  • Demonstration of gains in resolution and/or acquisition time comparing routine clinical 2D TSE sequences of a patient at 7T and 3T - Clinical Relevance
  • Demonstration of gains in resolution and/or acquisition time comparing 3D acquisition schemes - Clinical Relevance
  • Quantitative T2- and T2* mapping in the clinical

Current challenges and limitations of 7T clinical knee exams. Can we overcome the technical challenges?

  • Live demonstration using parallel transmit (pTx) functionality
  • Explanation of technical components of RF shimming
