MR imaging of the liver for surgeons

How does an MRI of the liver work and what possibilities does the MRI have to offer to surgeons?

Course objective:

Interpretation of MR imaging of the liver can be challenging for a surgeon, who is often dependent on a radiologist. In this course, a radiologist and a liver surgeon will illustratively explain the essential and most important aspects of liver MRI. The necessary sequence protocols for differential diagnosis of benign and malign liver lesions will be enriched by contributions of practitioners and illustrated by case examples. At the end of the course, participants will be familiar with the necessary MRI sequences and able to distinguish between the most common tumours of the liver.
