Acute Stroke Diagnoses and Workflow
Participants will understand the roles of established and new applications of CT and MRI in the clinical workflow of acute stroke. The participant will be able to describe the tissue conspicuity of key methods used in the clinics today. Specifically, the course objectives will include the ability to:
- Define and discuss definitions and techniques and procedures, which can be used to acquire CT and MT data now and in the near future
- Understand the methods used to process and display CT and MR images and the resulting tissue contrast
- Define and describe current and future CT and MR concepts critical for stroke
- Comprehend the present and new hybrids of imaging stroke, such as PET-MR
This webinar will provide 1.0 Category A CE Credit, approved by ASRT.
Maarten Lansberg, M.D.
Professor of Neurology
Stanford Stroke Center, Stanford CA
Dr. Lansberg joined the Stanford Stroke Center in 1997. His main clinical and research interest is the acute treatment of stroke patients. His research has focused on defining the utility of modern imaging techniques for the evaluation of acute stroke. These techniques include diffusion-weighted MRI, perfusion-weighted MRI and Xenon CT perfusion. The ultimate goal of his research is to develop more effective treatment strategies for stroke patients. Dr. Lansberg is currently leading a National Institutes of Health funded multicenter clinical trial investigating the role of CT Perfusion in identifying patients who are most likely to benefit from stroke therapies.
Michael Moseley, Ph.D.
Professor of Radiology
Stanford University, Stanford, CA
Dr. Moseley's interest involve research and diagnosis of disease states using new techniques of magnetic resonance (MR) in research and clinical. Water diffusion-sensitive MR imaging of the brain and other tissues. Mapping brain water diffusion has revolutionized our knowledge of the onset and evolution of cerebral stroke, making the MR scanner a potential "operating room" of choice for early and effective treatment of stroke and vascular disease. Because these diffusion and blood flow maps can be rapidly acquired, rapid identification of tissues that are in need of thrombolytic therapy or cytotoxic protection in the first critical hours following stroke or during surgery can be made. This non-invasive mapping of water motion and diffusion represents a new field of imaging and has created a breakthrough in assessment and treatment in stroke.
Sandra M. Rodriguez, B.S., M.S., R.T.(R)(MR)
Clinical Trial Technologist
Bioclinica, Newark, CA
As a managing Clinical Trial Technologist, Sandra Rodriguez is responsible for communication and interactions with 125 vendor MRI sites around the world. In addition to understanding sequence names and all the control variable, Sandra Rodriguez coordinates acquisition and archiving of thousands of MR studies, review and quality assurance for each study, and certification of each new hardware and software version from all of the MR manufacturers.
