MRTY5141: Hybrid Imaging B

This unit of study will investigate the equipment tomographic reconstruction image display and analysis used in current clinical molecular and magnetic resonance imaging MRI morphological hybrid systems eg PETMRI Techniques used to improve image quality quantification of radiopharmaceutical biodistribution and the reduction of radiation dose to the patient will also be included Best practice utilisation for typical clinical presentations will be explored Students will be introduced to imaging procedures and protocols for a range of equipment and radiopharmaceuticals Future trends in the application of hybrid medical imaging will be investigated through a review of the current literature

Code MRTY5141
Academic unit Clinical Imaging

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. discuss the innovations that preceded the development of PET/MRI
  • LO2. describe the system design of a commercially available PET/MRI
  • LO3. discuss the technical challenges of PET/MRI attenuation and motion correction
  • LO4. discuss the clinical benefits of MRI hybrid molecular imaging compared single modality or hybrid molecular imaging with computed tomography
  • LO5. consider the potential future role of PET/MR and radiation therapy/MRI in oncology
  • LO6. describe examples of research applications of PET/MRI.
  • LO7. discuss the opportunities afforded by for a National Total Body-PET (TB-PET) system based at the university
