Technical advances have opened up new diagnostic applications in female MR imaging with MRI gaining an increasing role in this patient population also in a clinical routine setting. This course will offer an overview of current MR imaging strategies for the diagnosis of breast and pelvic pathologies including fetal imaging and pelvic floor MRI. Established as well as potential future indications will be reviewed compared to other imaging examinations. We will discuss hard- and software requirements of MR systems for optimal clinical use as well as the optimization of imaging strategies and diagnostic advantages arising from the application of contrast agents. The aim of the course is furthermore to convey indepth knowledge of morphological changes of the breast and pelvic female organs under pathological conditions. We would like to welcome you to this course in Brussels, Belgium, where European experts in the field of female MR imaging will be given the opportunity to share their knowledge with you in plenary lectures and small group exercises.
