Scientific Symposium on Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

March 7, 2013

Location: Novotel Hotel, Vuurkruisenlaan 4, Leuven, Belgium

You are kindly invited to participate in the SCIENTIFIC SYMPOSIUM ON NUCLEAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE, THURSDAY, 7TH OF MARCH 2013, from 2:00PM until 5:30PM, on the occasion of the TRANSACT kick-off meeting.

In vivo Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Spectroscopic Imaging (MRS(I)) are unique, indispensable techniques for non-invasive metabolic imaging. Important areas where MRS(I) can make a difference are oncology and neurology, where metabolic changes due to, e.g., tumour formation, can be detected earlier and more sensitively than with morphological imaging modalities alone. This symposium will introduce us to some of the hottest topis regarding the acquisition, data preprocessing and classification of MRS(I) data, as well as MR imaging quantification.


 14:00-14:35 Roland Kreis (Dept. Clinical Research and Radiology, Univ.  Bern): "MR spectroscopy investigations with and without water suppression in brain, muscle and heart"

 14:35-15:10 Johannes Slotboom (Dept. Radiology, Neuroradiology and  Nuclear Medicine, University of Bern, Switzerland): "Clinical Routine  MRS in the Neuroradiology"

 15:10-15:45 Margarida Julià-Sapé (CIBER-BNN, Barcelona, Spain):  "Classification and decision-support systems for the analysis of brain tumour MRS data"

 15:45-16:15 COFFEE BREAK

 16:15-16:50 Carole Frindel (CREATIS, Université Claude Bernard Lyon I, France): "Computer vision tools for analysis and quantification of MR  images in the brain"

 16:50-17:25 Dirk Loeckx (icoMetrix, Belgium): "Automatic image registration and its role in multimodal image quantification"
