Bridging the Gap Between Clinical Needs & Technological Solutions

ISMRM – The Power of Science, Technology & Practice

The International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) is a multi-disciplinary nonprofit association that promotes innovation, development, and application of magnetic resonance techniques in medicine and biology throughout the world.

We are a community made up of clinicians, physicists, engineers, biochemists, and technologists – professionals united by a common interest in the ongoing dialogue between the scientific and clinical communities.

Above All We are a Community
