ISMRM Workshop on Ultra High Field MRI:
Technological Advances & Clinical Applications
Heidelberg, Germany


This workshop will cover not only the latest advances in high field MRI, but will also reveal the status of clinical ultra high field (UHF) MRI. The workshop will include teaching sessions and overview presentations by invited speakers, while providing time for discussion both in the form of poster presentations as well as panel sessions. The workshop will end with an opportunity for a tour of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) UHF facility.

Target Audience

This workshop is designed for researchers and clinicians interested in the research and applications in ultra high field MRI. It will also appeal to basic scientists using or considering UHF MRI; neuroscientists with an interest in fMRI; clinicians (radiologists, cardiologists, neurologists and surgeons as well as students using or considering use of UHF MRI.

Educational Objectives

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

  • Identify the clinical applications that benefit from UHF;
  • Recognize the clinical potential of UHF in neuroscience;
  • Review the advances of body, cardiac and MSK MRI at UHF;
  • Discuss the potential and challenges of B1 steering techniques;
  • Explain the impact of spatial and temporal B0 fluctuations; and
  • Relate the impact of tissue susceptibility mapping.
