The 2017 Minnesota Workshop
October 3-7, 2017
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to disseminate and discuss the technical issues and applications of MRI/MRS conducted with high magnetic fields (≥ 3 T). Presentations from experts in the major areas of high field MR research will cover fundamental principles, methodology, and biomedical applications in the brain as well as the other organ systems in the body. After attending this workshop, individuals can expect to be well informed of the advantages and limitations of high field MR and will have acquired much of the basic knowledge necessary to undertake high field MR investigations. Designed as both an educational program and a scientific forum for the presentation of the state-of-the-art research, the workshop is intended for a wide spectrum of basic and clinical scientists including cognitive scientists, physicists, radiologists, neurologists, neuropsychologists, psychiatrists and others interested in the technical development and biomedical applications of high field MRI.


ISMRM Workshop Series 2014: Safety in MRI - Guidelines, Rationale & Challenges
September 5th-7th, 2014 · Washington, DC, USA
During this three-day workshop, MR Safety was explored and explained from the perspectives of regulatory groups, science, and industry. The workshop devoted separate MR safety days to the static magnetic field (B0), the switched gradient fields (dB/dt), and the radiofrequency field (RF). Up-to-date, comprehensive education on MR Safety is the goal.
