Upcoming Meetings - Non-SPR

WHAT: International Symposium on the Fetal Brain 
Sponsored by the Fetal Medicine Institute at Children’s National Health System
WHEN: September 15-16, 2016
WHERE: Washington, DC
DETAILS: Featuring a 360-degree review of advances in understanding of the fetal brain – the road to here and now, and the road going forward – presented by a multidisciplinary panel of world-renowned experts in the fields of maternal-fetal medicine, developmental neuroscience, neurogenetics, fetal and neonatal neurology, and imaging, the symposium is a two-day, CME-accredited event that will provide a comprehensive, holistic review of both genetic and environmental aspects of normal and abnormal brain development on the fetus as well as a framework for understanding the effects of a failing or hostile intrauterine environment, or premature loss of  intrauterine support, on brain development.

Course Title: MRI Contrast Agents and Gadolinium Deposition in the Brain
Release Date: 10/27/2015
Expiration Date: 11/01/2016

This 30-minute self-study lecture is intended for radiologists, radiologic technologists, neurologists, pediatricians, and other phusicians who refer to patients for MRI Exams. 

Course Overview: The use of gadolinium-based contrast agents in MR imaging has been well-established for 25 years and is an extremely valuable tool for visualizing areas of interest.

However, recent publications have shown hyperintensities on MRI in the dentate nucleus and globus pallidus of patients who have received multiple gadolinium-based contrast injections and have no severe renal insufficiency. Gadolinium deposits have histopathologically been confirmed in the brain tissue of patients exhibiting these hyperintensities. While further research is needed to evaluate the clinical significance of these findings, radiologists, radiologic technologists, and referring physicians must be aware of the potential implications for ordering and performing contrast-enhanced MRI, especially in those patients who may require multiple scans.
