An example of a susceptibility-weighted imaging MRI Sequence.

This webinar reviews applications of susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences in neuroimaging. Mark C. Oswood, M.D. Ph.D., assistant professor, Department of Radiology, Hennepin County Medical Center, Minneapolis, explains the MR physics principles of SWI and describes imaging features of SWI in contrast to standard MRI sequences. He also illustrates the application of SWI to diseases commonly seen in radiology practice.

The webinar took place Sept. 29, 2016.
