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.

Oswood specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the brain and spine. He has 15 years of experience in performing non-operative pinpoint injections for the treatment of back and joint pain. He also has extensive experience in MRI including functional and metabolic examinations (fMRI and MR spectroscopy). Oswood has a special interest in cancer of the nervous system and is conducting several research studies to evaluate the use of advanced MRI techniques in the treatment of brain tumors.
