Clinical use of magnetic resonance imaging, from helping diagnose degenerative spine disease to stroke, is the focus of the 2013 W.H. Pool Jr. Society Weekend March 2-3 at Georgia Regents University.
The course, which also covers the physics of MRI technology, is for diagnostic radiologists and other health care professionals interested in MRI and provides continuing medical education credit. Dr. James V. Rawson, Warren Professor and Chair of the Department of Radiology at the Medical College of Georgia at GRU, is Course Director.
Lectures begin at 8 a.m. Saturday, March 2 at the GRU Alumni Center, 919 15th St. The eight-year old society honors Pool, a 1952 MCG graduate and Professor Emeritus who chaired the Department of Radiology from 1974-87.
