From gradients to images: Unlocking MRI’s full potential – system characterization and prediction.

7th Skope User Meeting: September 2–3, 2024, Tübingen, Germany


The 7th Skope User Meeting under the theme “From gradients to images: Unlocking MRI’s full potential – system characterization and prediction” will be held in Tübingen, Germany, on September 2nd and 3rd, directly before the Annual Conference of the DACH-ISMRM 2024.

The meeting will start on Monday evening with a dinner session. The scientific session on Tuesday morning will include guest talks and offer the participants an exclusive sneak peek into Skope’s new product before the official release. In the afternoon, we will run interactive demo sessions.

Abstracts & Speakers

Susie Y. Huang, MD, PhD: "Scientific talk"

Speaker bio: Susie Y. Huang, MD, PhD, is a Radiologist in the Division of Neuroradiology and Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in the Department of Radiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and an Associate Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. She received a PhD in physical chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles, and an MD from Harvard Medical School. She has published numerous research articles on the development, translation, and evaluation of novel magnetic resonance imaging techniques for neuroimaging research and clinical applications. Her current research focuses on the development and translation of advanced diffusion MRI methods for probing tissue microstructure in the central nervous system. She currently serves as the lead Principal Investigator on a $14-million NIH BRAIN initiative multi-institutional collaborative grant to develop the next-generation Connectome MRI scanner for multiscale imaging of the human brain.

Caroline Le Ster, PhD: "Latest methodological developments at 11.7T on Iseult scanner"

The 11.7T Iseult scanner delivered its first brain images in 2023 on healthy volunteers, after nearly 20 years of research and development. In order to make the most of the SNR boost allowed by the field increase with such a new system, an intensive work of characterisation was performed and is still ongoing. Field monitoring has proven an invaluable tool for troubleshooting and for methodological developments, as will be discussed in this talk.

Speaker bio: Dr. Caroline Le Ster studied bioscience engineering before her PhD at Siemens Healthcare, dedicated to bone marrow qMRI. She then joined NeuroSpin (CEA, France) and has been working since then on UHF methodological developments for neuroimaging.
