RSNA, McCormick Place

  • Date: Tuesday December 1, 2009
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • This is "RSNA Informatics Course" IA31 and approved for AMA and PRA Category 1 Credit
  • Location: S401CD, McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois


  • to enhance interpretation of DICOM images through the use of 3D visualization and analysis
  • to gain experience with interactive, quantitative assessment of complex anatomical structures and functional images
  • to present current directions of quantitative imaging as a biomarker in clinical trials

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to

  • Describe the methods used for basic analysis of quantitative imaging parameters
  • Describe the principles of image registration, segmentation, and volume measurement, and select and use appropriate software for 3D reconstruction
  • Identify key analysis and acquisition requirements for multi-center quantitative studies
  • Evaluate the impact of quantitative analysis methodology on their research interest


  • 10:30 AM (Kasia Macura): Overview of imaging biomarkers and their use in clinical trials
  • 10:45 AM (Randy Gollub): Generic principles of image registration, segmentation, visualization (technical aspects)
  • 11:00 AM (Jeff Yap, Sonia Pujol): Description and hands-on interactive demo for each of the imaging biomarkers and requirements for standardized acquisition in multi-center trials (e.g. RSNA QIBA)
    • Hands-On: Volumetric MR analysis: tumor growth analysis and measurements
    • Hands-On: FDG-PET/CT (pre/post-therapy whole-body imaging with SUV quantification)
    • DCE-MRI
