A Practical Approach to MR Imaging: Stability or High Relaxivity?
Released: June 22, 2022 Expires: June 30, 2024 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Howard Rowley
20022

In this CME/CE accredited program Dr. Howard Rowley reviews important efficacy considerations of the FDA approved gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs), including clinical utility, safety issues, and practical approaches for selecting a GBCA when considering patient history, pathology and related risks.

Following Dr. Rowley's presentation, Dr. Rowley joins a panel of MR imaging experts in discussion about this important topic, followed by a moderated Q & A session with audience participation.

Educational Objectives:
At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • List the key considerations in the choice of GBCAs, while balancing safety and efficacy.
  • Describe the transient effects of T1 and T2 relaxation during a GBCA bolus.
  • Understand the impact of high relaxivity gadolinium agents vs macrocyclic agents.
  • Design MRI protocols to optimize exam efficiency and enhanced lesion detection.
  • Implement GBCA protocols for special patient populations after considering risk assessment.

This program is made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from Bracco Diagnostics, Inc.

MR Contrast Selection & Utilization in Pediatric & Neonatal Patients
Released: November 22, 2021 Expires: November 30, 2023 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Chetan C. Shah, MD, MBA
19815

In MR Imaging, a careful review of the safety criteria for the selection of a Gadolinium-based Contrast Agents (GBCAs) should be considered for pediatric and neonatal patients. The program will provide a comprehensive review of the supporting research that addresses Gadolinium selection in this special patient population. Both chronic and long-term effects of GBCAs will be discussed.

As a Pediatric Neuroradiologist, Dr. Shah is uniquely qualified to share his experience which includes a discussion of risk vs benefits, supported by practical protocols for the administration of MR contrast; including limiting the amount of contrast given to patients that may receive several lifetime doses. Following the presentation, the audience is invited to join Dr. Shah for an interactive Q & A session.

Educational Objectives:
At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Explain the differences between available MR contrast agents and any associated adverse events
  • Improve clinical management decisions about when to administer MR contrast (risk vs benefit)
  • Apply FDA guidelines regarding MRI contrast agents to clinical practice.

Made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from Bracco Diagnostics, Inc.
