Co-Moderator: R. Forfang (Oslo)


Speakers

abstract
M. Prescott (Manchester):
Dynamic Imaging with Case Studies
K. Waterstram-Rich (Rochester):
Artefacts and Pitfalls with Case Studies

 


Educational objectives:

Upon completion of this session the attendee will be able to:

  1. State the conditions for which dynamic renal imaging could be clinically justified.
  2. Discuss the types of case that dynamic renal imaging could be of value to.
  3. For image acquisition, discuss the factors that should be optimised that would lead to images and data being of good diagnostic quality.
  4. For images processing, discuss the factors that should be optimised that would lead to images and data being of good diagnostic quality.
  5. Know the purpose of doing a renal study.

Dynamic imaging with case studies

Outline: To understand the conditions and cases in witch dynamic renal studies will contribute positively to diagnosis and management of patient (clinical justification).

Artefacts and pitfall with case studies

Outline: To understand what factors needs to be optimised in order to produce images and data of a quality adequate for image interpretation.


Summary:

This session has two presentations. The purpose of both sessions are to give technologists knowledge about the use of nuclear medicine in renal diseases, advantages and disadvantages with a dynamic study and be aware of pitfalls and artefacts.


Key Words:

Dynamic imaging, Renal, Pitfalls
