BRIC-Radiology Faculty Candidate Seminar
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a premier diagnostic tool, not only for its past achievements, but also for its unparalleled research and clinical potential. Over the last 3 decades, higher magnetic field strengths and therefore higher operational frequencies have been associated with the advancement of MRI. Higher field strengths bring significant technical and physical challenges as well as opportunities for new engineering innovation. In this presentation, we will glimpse at the electromagnetic challenges and advantages of human MRI at high field strength. We will provide new electromagnetic methodologies (hardware and software solutions) that render the performance of ultrahigh field MRI robustly safe, efficient and insensitive to variations in the patients. We will show implementation of these methodologies into several 7 tesla human applications.
