Gadolinium in 2020: Balancing Retention and Efficacy in Today’s Environment

Presented by: Northwest Imaging Forums, Inc.

Supported by an unrestricted educational grant from: Bracco Diagnostics Inc.

MRI represents a powerful imaging modality leveraged by neuroradiologists for screening, diagnosing, and monitoring various neurological conditions. Understanding advances and trends in neuro MRI, along with their potential impact on clinical practice, is essential for these professionals. In an effort to provide the neuroradiology community with the most up-to-date information, this symposium will cover updates and trends on the use of GBCAs in MR imaging, focusing on the impact of AI on the routine use of GBCAs and how best to optimize GBCA in clinical practice balancing retention and efficacy.
