Ultra-succesful ultra-high field MRI workshop held in Copenhagen

Flyer for the ultra-high field meeting In spring 2010, 85 MR scientists and clinicians gathered in Copenhagen for a 1½ day symposium on scientific and clinical applications of MR in humans at magnetic fields of 7 tesla and above.

We were proud to feature presentations from outstanding experts in the field of ultra-high field imaging applications:

  • Marta Bianciardi, NIH, USA: Spontaneous signal fluctuations in human fMRI at high magnetic fields.
  • Fernando E. Boada, University of Pittsburg, USA: Monitoring Ion Homeostasis with Sodium MRI (sMRI).
  • Jeff Duyn, NIH, USA: Anatomical MRI based on magnetic susceptibility contrast.
  • Rolf Gruetter, University of Lausanne, Switzerland. In vivo metabolism studies at ultra-high field.
  • Mark Ladd, University Duisburg-Essen, Germany. Advances in Ultra-High Field Body Imaging
  • Sarah J. Nelson, University of California, San Francisco, USA: Clinical applications at ultra-high field.
  • Oliver Speck, Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg, Germany: Towards fMRI of subcortical structures at high field.
  • Siegfried Trattnig, Medical University of Vienna, Austria: High resolution morphological, compositional and metabolic imaging in the musculoskeletal system by ultra-high field.
  • Robert Turner, Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, Germany: Multimodal imaging
  • Kamil Ugurbil, University of Minnesota, USA: fMRI of the visual system at ultra-high field
  • Lawrence Wald, Massachusetts General Hospital, USA: Control of CBF at the laminar level.

Venue
The meeting was held at the remarkably pleasant Helene Elsass Centre situated beautifully just north of the Danish Capital Copenhagen (map).
