University of Michigan Workshop on Arterial Spin Labeling MRI: Technical Updates and Clinical Experience
March 9-10, 2019
This weekend workshop is intended for the community of users and developers of ASL MRI techniques to network, share new findings, discuss developments & experience, with the intent of mapping out further technical recommendations for clinical translation. Among other topics, we will focus on sharing our experience and learning from each other.
More information on the workshop and abstract submission (Deadline: 10 January 2019) can be found here.
This event is officially endorsed by the ESMRMB.

ISMRM – MR Value Workshop

11-13 March 2019; Edinburgh, Scotland

Why Attend?

ISMRM in affiliation with ESMRMB is hosting this MR Value workshop in Europe to continue the conversation and expand dialogue and solutions. The topic of “Value” is increasingly important in medicine in general and diagnostic imaging in particular. There are significant pressures on healthcare systems around the world, and although there are major differences in how healthcare is funded and delivered, it is of the utmost importance to demonstrate that we are providing “value for money.” This is a universal issue, and issues are quite different from continent to continent.  Attached is an MR Value flow chart created by James Pipe, Ph.D., to provide more insight on this workshop.

What Will You Learn?

  • Developing approaches to help drive the field forward in Europe, including topics such as different healthcare systems;
  • Novel approaches to high-quality protocols;
  • Application of artificial intelligence-driven tools to maintain and expand the availability of MR imaging;
  • Implement the overall topic into a practical environment.

What Do You Do Next?

Devices: MR Compatibility
April 10-12, 2019, London/UK

The course’s teaching objectives are:

  • Promote the concept of device future- and in particular health system-proofing based on MR compatibility;
  • Disseminate knowledge and promote exchanges between all people involved in the safe use in, and development of devices for, the MR environment.

The lectures are grouped under the following 3 themes:

  • “Can I Put this Person With this Thing in the MRI Scanner?” (Day 1)
  • “Physical Principles for Device Design and Applications” (Day 2)
  • “Towards Getting a Device Approved: Standards and Regulations” (Day 3)

The lecturers come from academia (all levels of seniority), industry (large and small), health sector and regulatory bodies. All are recognised experts in the fields of: MR physics, medical devices (engineering, R&D and commercialisation), radiography and biomedical data analysis.

This event is officially endorsed by the ESMRMB.

The symposium is focused to the field of interventional MRI. Talks and posters will be held on both, basic experimental studies and clinical applications. In this manner it is planned – comparable to former meetings – to provide a forum where scientists and clinicians can contribute their knowledge and experience in this special field.

More Information on the Symposium can be found here.
