Zachary K. Englander, MD, MS; Christopher Troy, MD; Masih Tazhibi, BA; Nina Yoh, MD; Hong-Jian Wei, PhD; Neil Feldstein, MD; Elisa Konofagou, PhD; Luca Szalontay, MD; Cheng-Chia Wu, MD, PhD,

The blood-brain barrier (BBB) remains a significant blockade for effective drug delivery in treating diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). Low-frequency focused ultrasound (FUS) therapy in conjunction with intravenous microbubbles can transiently disrupt the BBB in a localized manner to facilitate drug delivery. This review examines recent preclinical studies evaluating the safety and feasibility of FUS-mediated BBB opening in the brainstem. The authors also discuss the published phase 0-2 clinical trials of low-frequency FUS therapy in the adult glioma population, and phase 1 clinical trials in DIPG that are underway.

Clinical Applications of MR Imaging in Stereotactic Localization Radiosurgery Procedures
Released: January 02, 2024 Expires: January 31, 2027 CE credits: 1.5 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Jenny WU, MD | Glen Stevens, DO, PhD
20348
Gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) are essential for enhancing the quality of MRI scans to make it easier for radiologists to identify pathology. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) recommend limiting patient exposure to gadolinium where possible.

One technique for reducing this exposure is to use a high relaxivity GBCA that can be administered at a lower dose than a conventional GBCA, without any impact on image quality. GBCA selection for interventional procedures such as radiosurgery is one such example, where the selection of a GBCA can play a role in patient management and outcomes.

In this program, an experienced neuroradiologist and neuro oncologist will present their clinical experiences with the use of stereotactic localization radiosurgery, following the administration of a high relaxivity GBCA. Through case study examples, the clinical impact of contrast selection will be demonstrated. Following the presentation, questions from the audience will be addressed during a live Q&A.

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

  • Review the role of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for brain metastases and the role of pre-operative localization MRI exams for stereotactic radiosurgery.
  • Outline the differences between gadopiclenol and other group II gadolinium-based contrast agents.
  • Discuss the use of gadopiclenol in specific case-based scenarios for stereotactic localization exams and its impact on patient management.

With the recent FDA approval of gadopiclenol injection, radiologists now have the choice of a macrocyclic gadolinium-based contrast agent (GBCA) with 2 – 3 times higher relaxivity at a lower standard dose as compared to other gadolinium-based contrast agents on the marke

Therefore, and because gadopiclenlol is different than other currently available GBCAs, a review of the clinical benefits of using a higher relaxivity GBCA at a lower administered dose is important. A clear understanding of relaxivity and calculation of the volume to be administered based on dosing considerations, is necessary

In this accredited webinar, Mr. Faulkner will provide insights into the differences of the current FDA-approved GBCAs and how these differences apply to MR imaging. Following the presentation, questions from the audience were addressed during a live Q&A.

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

  • Identify the properties that distinguish gadopiclenol injection from the other high relaxivity and conventional gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs).
  • Employ the FDA-approved indications and clinical applications for gadopiclenol injection.
  • Calculate and administer the proper volume dose of gadopiclenol, as compared to other conventional GBCAs.
  • Apply clinical considerations and dosing options for gadopiclenol to vulnerable patient populations who may experience repeat dosing of GBCA.

Incidental musculoskeletal findings are fairly common when reading breast MRI, as the ribs and sternum are included in the field of view. It is important that radiologists be familiar with the appearance of benign and malignant chest wall lesions on breast MRI in order to appropriately direct diagnosis and treatment, as well as to avoid unnecessary workup of benign lesions.

This activity is designed to educate radiologists about the wide range of both benign and malignant lesions which can be detected incidentally on breast MRI by reviewing the imaging findings and other pertinent demographic considerations regarding these lesions.

This CME and CE accredited program aims to provide a comprehensive overview of new artificial intelligence applications supporting cardiac CT. Through clinical case study reviews, Dr. Dinesh Kalra will share his clinical knowledge and insights into cardiovascular imaging and provide examples of super-resolution, deep-learning reconstructive technologies that are improving cardiac CT image quality and the overall diagnostic confidence in cardiovascular case interpretations.

Dr. Kalra stated, “I'm able to better see the same segments that were difficult to see with older generation scanners. The image sharpness, the resolution, and the low-contrast detection rates have all improved and there's no trade-off, so one doesn’t sacrifice resolution for radiation dose. This allows us to deliver less radiation, see less noise, while obtaining superb image quality.” Following the presentation questions from the audience were addressed in a moderated Q&A session.

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

  • Describe the various reconstruction techniques and their clinical utility in coronary CT.

Numerous risk assessment models are available to calculate a woman’s lifetime risk of developing and/or carrying a gene mutation that may predispose her to developing breast cancer. Knowledge of risk may help to inform individual screening practices. Further understanding and evaluation of risk assessment models are needed to increase their utilization.

The purpose of this activity is to 1) introduce breast cancer risk assessment models for estimating an individual’s risk of developing breast cancer or risk for carrying a gene mutation that may predispose to developing breast cancer, 2) review the strengths and limitations of each model and the model’s applicability to underrepresented populations, and 3) provide an example that demonstrates the use of risk assessment models.

Pregnant patients infrequently undergo CT given the risk of radiation to the developing fetus. As such, when CT is performed on pregnant patients in emergent situations, radiologists may be unfamiliar with the appearance of the placenta on CT and its normal evolution throughout gestation. This activity is designed to educate radiologists about the normal appearance of the placenta on CT and its evolution throughout pregnancy, as well as differentiation of these findings from placental abruption.
