Join us for a FREE Webinar on MRI in Radiation Oncology

By Christina Ruiz, March 19, 2018

This webinar will be live on Wednesday, March 21st, 2018 at 6:30 pm EST

This lecture will discuss the emerging clinical applications of MRI in radiation oncology. Topics will include MRI simulation, MRI-based dosimetry and the use of MRI in treatment planning.  The potential for using MRI to evaluate the effectiveness of cancer therapy on an individual basis will also be discussed. At the end of this lecture, the attendee shall have a clear understanding of the general clinical importance and main technical issues involved in integrating MRI systems into clinical oncologic practice.

 

Presented by, Geoffrey D. Clarke, PhD., FACR, FAAPM, is Professor of Radiology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He is also the Director of the Graduate Program in Radiological Science and the Chief of the MRI Division for the Research Imaging Institute at UTSHCSA. Dr. Clarke is co-author of Bushong’s “Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Physical and Biological Principles, 4th edition”, published by Elsevier Mosby. Dr. Clarke was one of the first generation of MRI scientists to use the technology for investigating biomedical problems. Early on, he developed imaging technologies and spectroscopic methods to study head trauma and coronary artery disease. He has received research grants from the National Institutes of Health and American Heart Association.  His current research includes evaluating skeletal muscle metabolism in diabetes and measuring impaired cardiac function due to perinatal stresses using magnetic resonance. As Leader of the Imaging Core Research Laboratory at the Southwest National Primate Center, Dr. Clarke also provides technical support to colleagues who seek to develop practical image acquisition and analysis methods for their research programs.
