Diffusion MRI: From Research to Clinic
This workshop is designed for researchers (including Ph.D. students and postdocs); clinicians (e.g., neurologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons); MR technologists; government regulatory experts; nonprofit and academic groups interested in early diagnosis and public health; and members of the ISMRM Diffusion MRI and White Matter Study Groups.
This workshop aims to elaborate a common vision for the future of the field and what is needed for its translation to everyday clinical practice. Key topics include the latest methodological developments in hardware and acquisitions, microstructure modelling, and the use of AI. A special attention is also given to novel developments of diffusion MRI outside the brain (prostate, fetal, placental, muscle, and breast, amongst others). The workshop will then focus on bridging the gap between research and clinic and establishing the translational path of the different themes, focusing on better links between experiments and modelling, consolidation of current approaches, and current and potential future integration into the clinical studies and practice.
