ISMRM Workshop Series • 26-28 March 2018

ISMRM Workshop on
Advanced Neuro MR:
Best Practices for Technical Implementation

The Korea Science and Technology Center (KOFST), Seoul, South Korea


This workshop intends to: 1) summarize the most up-to-date knowledge of advanced MR techniques that are ready for prime time for clinical and neuroscience applications; 2) identify technical resources that are readily available to the MR community; 3) facilitate, accelerate and encourage collaborative efforts for the sharing and dissemination of MR technical capabilities; and 4) introduce emerging MR techniques that could be ready for prime time in the near future. This workshop will feature speakers who are not only leading efforts in advanced neuro MR techniques, but who are also providing important resources to enhance the quality of global MR science. Each technical category will include panel discussions on best practices and their pros and cons.

MR techniques included in this workshop program:

  • Fast and Robust Imaging
  • Diffusion
  • Perfusion
  • Susceptibility MRI
  • Advanced MRS
  • MR Fingerprinting & Parametric Mapping
  • Magnetization Transfer/CEST
  • fMRI & Brain Connectome

Target Audience

This workshop is intended for MR physicists who develop MR technologies and/or support clinical and neuroscience research, as well as for high-end users who will benefit from the comprehensive presentations and discussions in order to define the best practices and resources available to the MR community; ISMRM members including MR scientists and engineers; high-end users including clinicians, neuroscientists and psychologists; and postdoctoral fellows, PhD and MD/PhD students, residents and fellows using or considering the use of neuro MR technologies.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify advanced neuro MR techniques and best practices that are ready for clinical and neuroscience applications;
  • Discuss emerging neuro MR techniques that could impact clinical and neuroscience applications;
  • Describe best available data acquisition, processing, reconstruction and analysis strategies for clinical and neuroscience applications; and
  • Review readily available sources of recommended advanced neuro MR techniques.
