Prof. Mikael Boesen will speak at ESSR.
Prof. Mikael Boesen, IAG’s Head of Musculoskeletal Imaging Research will be presenting at the 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting of the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology, taking place online from June 10-12, 2021.
His talk is scheduled for Saturday June 12 13:40 CEST (GMT+2) and will be on the topic of DCE-MRI imaging of hand arthritis, as part of the arthritis subcommittee session.
Dynamic Contrast Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (DCE- MRI) is a method evaluating perfusion characteristics which may provide extra information for the diagnosis and evaluation of arthritic disease, e.g. research suggests DCE- MRI can confirm the clinical diagnosis of arthritis earlier than RAMRIS in some patients with early rheumatoid arthritis.
IAG’s team has developed proprietary methods for assessment of DCE-MRI data and has been deploying these in clinical trials since since 2010.

The European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology (ESSR) is dedicated to advancing the knowledge, diagnosis and treatment of both the normal and abnormal musculoskeletal system by means of imaging. The ESSR provides a European forum for education and research of musculoskeletal radiology.
The ESSR is the primary organization in Europe that enhances the development, distribution, and cost-effective implementation of state of the art radiological concepts and tools in the musculoskeletal system. It fosters cooperation between medical and non-medical professionals who are active in furthering the development of musculoskeletal radiology with the specific aim of benefiting their patients.
The ESSR aims to produce solutions to current and imminent issues by promoting and supporting research throughout Europe and to provide channels for continuous education. For these two purposes, the ESSR coordinates research activities, develops educational and multidisciplinary research activities and encourages the presentation of the results of these endeavors at its annual meeting. The annual meeting is the major European forum for sharing advances in musculoskeletal radiology and offers excellence in education.
