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.

European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology
March 15-18, 2016
The theoretical-practical Course is for paediatricians, neonatologists and paediatric radiologists and it is limited to 42 participants. Practical sessions include tests for the participants and case discussions without direct examination of a baby.It is open to neonatologists, paediatric radiologists and paediatricians.The Course's language is English.
Leaning objectives of the Course
Ultrasound imaging of neonatal urogenital tract
• To become familiar with the different pathologic images of neonatal urogenital tract and with renal haemodynamics
• In the practical session, imaging tests will be made to help participants understand many practical issues of diagnosis and the importance of ultrasound follow-up
Ultrasound imaging of neonatal chest
• To understand the technique of the exam which needs high skill
Ultrasound imaging of neonatal abdomen
• To understand limits and usefulness of gastrointestinal tract, liver, spleen and pancreas ultrasound imaging
• In the practical session, imaging tests will be made to help participants understand many practical issues of diagnosis
Ultrasound imaging of neonatal brain
• To become familiar with the different pathologic images of neonatal brain: morphology and haemodynamics
• In the practical session, imaging tests will be made to help participants understand many practical issues of diagnosis and the importance of ultrasound follow-up.
European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and Continued Medical Education credits will be available.
