This workshop will provide a practical step-by-step post-processing of BOLD fMRI studies with SPM12 software and data presentation. This activity is intended to educate neuroradiologists, neuroradiology fellows, physicists, clinical psychologists, and MR technologists. The workshop is intended for those with moderate to advanced level fMRI experience. The workshop will include didactic lectures on: Introduction to BOLD, Paradigm Design, and SPM; Clinical Overview of Language Activation; Presenting BOLD fMRI data-statistical processing strategies; and practical exercises on language data processing.
Attendees should have a basic understanding of the physical principles and clinical applications of BOLD fMRI, and at the completion of this workshop should be able to perform the following:
Registrants are required to bring their own laptop with a minimum of 2G of RAM and 10G of hard disk space to the workshop. Your laptops should be preloaded with SPM 12 and MATLAB software prior to the workshop. DICOM BOLD fMRI practice data sets will be available at the workshop. All registrants will be given instructions on downloading SPM12 and the 15-day free MATLAB license prior to the workshop.
No CME credit will be given for this activity
The IHIWG (International Hydrocephalus Imaging Working Group) consists of Neuroradiologists, Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Bioengineers, and basic scientists who meet twice a year in conjunction with ASNR and the ISHCSF (International Society for Hydrocephalus and CSF Disorders). During our meeting we address all forms of hydrocephalus with emphasis on imaging NPH. We discuss phase contrast techniques to measure aqueductal CSF flow, DESH (Disproportionately Enlarged Subarachnoid Space Hydrocephalus), and TimeSLIP to predict response to shunting. We also compare these noninvasive MR-based techniques to the more invasive intracranial pressure monitoring, saline infusion, high volume tap test and external lumbar drainage. We review CSF production and resorption, role of aquaporins, and CSF flow measurements to study Chiari I malformations as well as potential sources of error in our measurements. Recent meetings have had focused sessions on MRI measurement of connectivity, tractography, elastography and evolving concepts such as the “glymphatic system” and the VIIP (Visual Impairment and Intracranial Pressure) syndrome experienced by astronauts spending time on the space station.
We discuss infantile hydrocephalus and benign external hydrocephalus and the role of the latter as a potential cause of NPH later in life. We examine changes in DTI and MR elastography in NPH and discuss related topics such as aqueductal stenosis and pseudotumor cerebri.
