British and Irish Chapter of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine

This is a past event



The International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) is the foremost world-wide organisation for the promotion of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Its national offshoot is the British and Irish Chapter of ISMRM (BIC-ISMRM), which holds an annual Scientific Meeting, usually in the Autumn.  The conference will bring together scientists, doctors and students concerned with the development and use of MRI from a broad range of disciplinary and geographical regions, primarily from the UK and Ireland, but also from Europe.  Aberdeen University has a long history of research in MRI; the first whole-body MRI scanner was developed here in the late 1970s and the first-ever diagnostic body scan took place at the University of Aberdeen in 1980. The conference will include a visit to the “Mark-I” scanner at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, as well as the laboratories where current MRI research is taking place.

This event will be held over 3 days in September 2023.  It is expected that the first day will consist of a workshop at Foresterhill Hospital where 3 different sites will be visited to show different MRI scanners.  The following 2-days will consist of oral and poster presentations.
