Attend the Swedish 7T User Meeting!

Human brain. MR image.

The National 7T MR facility in Lund is finally reviving the 7T User Meetings after a few years pause due to the pandemic. Main aims of the meeting are to exchange experiences and discuss needs and challenges, and to learn from each other! Reflecting this, the presentations will be of projects in various stages; some may only be conceptual ideas, others are running and yet other are finalized. Everyone with an interest in clinical MRI is welcome to register.

The 7T magnetic resonance imaging system is a valuable tool for research in various fields and with which new radiological and medical questions can be answered. It allows, for example neuroscientists to study functions of the human brain with unprecedented sensitivity. Moreover, it is ideally suited for translational research, bridging the gap between the preclinical- and standard clinical MR technologies.

The National 7T MR facility in Lund offers support in project setup, scanning and development to researchers from all Swedish universities. The system is owned by LBIC and operates within the Center for Imaging and Function at Skåne University Hospital in Lund.

After some years with pandemic, we are happy to finally be able to invite you to the 7T User Meeting 30th of August! The meeting will take place in Lund and you find the preliminary program and registration page below.
