For each challenge ideas can be submitted (see submission guidelines below), which will be reviewed by the speakers and other MR experts. The ideas don’t need to be fully worked out and there is no strict format, so be creative. You are also invited to prepare a video and post it in the Slack channel #2019_jfs_challenges or post a link to the video in the submitted idea abstract.
To give our speakers a chance to introduce their challenges to you before the ISMRM 2019, we are planning a virtual meeting on 12 December 2018. Please click here to register for this virtual meeting.
The best ideas will be selected to be presented at the ISMRM 2019 in Montreal, Canada during the Junior Fellow Symposium. After the winning ideas are pitched, teams will be formed around each idea. In a follow up, these teams can then collaboratively work with the speaker to realize the idea.
…sensitize the MR community for medical/technical/economic challenges outside the (local) box
…strengthen diverse collaborations by connecting researchers/clinicians from resource rich with researchers/clinicians from resource poor settings
…give a voice to and empower researchers globally
…improve diagnosis and treatment of many more patients by bringing MRI to the world
So the challenges are on! What ideas do you have?
