Pediatric Radiology Virtual Visiting Professor: "Pediatric vascular imaging in tumors, renal failure, and other tough spots: Ferumoxytol to the rescue!"
This activity will increase knowledge among radiologists, radiology trainees, radiology support staff, and referring physicians about the potential utility of ferumoxytol-enhanced MRIs. Important considerations will be discussed that will benefit nursing staff administering the agent, MRI technologists scanning using the agent, and interpreting radiologists. Cost considerations are also important in deciding between imaging modalities to utilize and relative healthcare costs will be discussed.
- Learn the mechanism of action of ferumoxytol in vascular MR imaging and potential side-effects during and following injection.
- Learn how the injection technique differs from other MR contrast media.
- Learn potential indications for ferumoxytol-enhanced MRI.
