Program Description

The Neuro’s McConnell Brain Imaging Centre will host a one-day scientific symposium to celebrate the arrival of Canada's first whole-body 7T MRI scanner. This symposium follows the ISMRM meeting in Montreal. The themes include methods and applications of structural, functional and spectroscopy high-field MRI in human subjects and animal models. The symposium will feature talks by internationally recognized experts in ultra-high field MRI, focusing on methods and research applications in neuroscience. All day refreshments including cocktails will be offered. Guided visits to the new 7T facility will be available to non-Montreal-based attendees.
