Dates set for ultrahigh-field MR symposium

The Max-Dulbruck Center for Molecular Imaging will host the 6th scientific symposium on "Clinical Needs, Research Promises and Technical Solutions in Ultrahigh Field Magnetic Resonance" for 26 June 2015, in Berlin.

The symposium is designed to provide an overview of state-of-the-art clinical and preclinical ultrahigh-field MRI, explore its future direction, and promote research in the field. The scientific program includes four sessions with technical developments and clinical applications. The agenda also features a poster session, technical exhibition, and a social event.

The 2015 symposium will be preceded by a workshop on radiofrequency (RF) coils from 23 June through 25 June as part of the Lectures of MRI series of the European Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB).

The RF coil workshop provides an overview of designing, constructing, and testing RF coils for both animal and human scanners. Practical sessions will cover approximately 50% of the course, in which participants will learn to build and characterize surface coils and volume resonators of their particular interests. The hands-on course is designed for basic scientists and engineers, but also invites clinicians, radiographers, applications specialists, and other MR users interested in gaining a better insight into RF coil technology.
