Overview: This is the first of a three-part series designed to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the utility and future directions of paediatric MRI. This first course provides you with “Everything you need to know about Imaging the Developing Brain.” The course begins with an overview of normal brain development from 2nd trimester to term, and then details the methodological challenges unique imaging the neonatal and fetal brain. The following presentations focus on the variety of neuroimaging approaches, anatomical and functional, and post-processing techniques used to improve characterization of the maturing brain. We then take you to the next level, and provide overviews of advanced imaging methods used to study brain maturation, such as surface-based morphometry and volumetrics, diffusion imaging and functional MRI. Whether you are a Practitioner or a PhD, this course will provide you with the knowledge to be able to assess normal brain development and highlight the importance of utilising more novel approaches to assess developing brain in both the research and clinical settings.
