Webinar: Using High Fields to Combat Ischemic Stroke with Cell Therapy

Webinar Overview
Thursday, November 29th 2018, 11AM EST 

The World Health Organization has listed stroke as the second most common cause of death world-wide. Limitations of current treatments, such as effectiveness in only a small percentage of patients and decreasing effectiveness with application time after the onset of stroke, make the need for novel treatment methods paramount.

What to Expect

In this webinar, Grant will discuss this revolutionary approach to stroke treatment as well as the MR approaches developed to optimize the cell therapy. He will explain how sodium can be used as a reliable marker to determine effectiveness of the treatment and how the ultra-high field strength of 21.1 Tesla provides the resolution and sensitivity necessary to make sodium imaging feasible.
Who Should Attend

The webinar will be useful to researchers focusing on treatments of damage to the brain, such as during stroke. Additionally, MRI scientists working with X-nuclei and those interested in ultra-high fields will learn how to make the most of these studies.
