NIBIB New Horizons Lecture
Nicole Seiberlich
Recent developments in pulse sequence design, signal processing techniques, model-based reconstructions, and improved MR hardware and computing capabilities have revitalized the field of quantitative MRI.  Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting is one example of a technology that has emerged out of these advances, and one that could change the way the field thinks about the nature of signal encoding and information in our data.  It is important to remain cognizant of the challenges to clinical adoption of such quantitative MR techniques and for scientists to work closely with physicians to ensure that they are implemented and used appropriately.  However, the high level of interest within the MR community, coupled with the strength of these new technologies, may pave the way for these techniques to become essential components of the clinical workflow for tissue characterization in the near future.
