Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Veterinary Medicine

Date:  Thurs, May 4, 2017

Time:  Registration 6:00p-7:00p / Lecture 7:00p-8:30p

Location:  Philander Chase Knox Estate Valley Forge National Historical Park, 151 Library Ln, Malvern, PA 19355

Speaker:  Melissa Logan, PhD, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology)

The purpose of the talk is to discuss the applications of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in veterinary medicine.  A small portion of the talk will focus on the basic physics behind the MRI and how images are acquired.  In addition, different imaging sequences and imaging planes will be discussed and their uses in helping to identify underlying disease processes. There will be a discussion on image interpretation techniques to help the participants (veterinarians and technical staff) gain a basic understanding of how to evaluate the different imaging sequences.  The talk will focus predominately on central and peripheral nervous system disorders, but orthopedic applications will also be reviewed.  There will be a comparison of MRI and its benefits over other imaging modalities such as radiographs, myelogram and computed tomography (CT).   There will also be a section of case presentations, imaging analysis with treatment plans and case outcomes.
