Upcoming Events & Courses

BME CLASS - In Vivo Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy - from Data to Clinical Benefit

Date/Time: Thursdays, 4:10-6:40 PM 

Location: TBD

Instructors: Christoph Juchem, PhD, christoph.juchem@columbia.edu

                     Lawrence Kegeles, MD, PhD, lsk5@cumc.columbia.edu 

Course Description 

Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) allows the detection and quantification of chemical compounds from localized regions in living tissue, e.g., the brain, in a noninvasive fashion. It thereby provides a powerful tool to assess key aspects of brain metabolism and clinical conditions. This combined academic course and “boot-camp” comprises all aspects of in vivo MRS from theory to experiment, from data acquisition to the derivation of metabolic signatures, and from study design to clinical interpretation.
