Research seminar on placenta MR imaging
I am supposed to have an educational research seminar on "non-invasive MR imaging of in vivo placental oxygenation" in the Children's National Medical Center at 12:00 pm at June 21, 2017. The objectives of this seminar are
- to review the underlying physiological mechanisms of oxygen exchange/transport in the placenta,
- to understand how novel in vivo MR imaging techniques can be used to study oxygen exchange/transport in the placenta, and
- to summarize the strengths and technical limitations in studying placental oxygenation in vivo using MRI.
