19th Kuopio bio-MRI workshop

31.5.-2.6.2022: The 19th Kuopio bio-MRI workshop and post-graduate course:

Advanced MRI methods for assessment of microstructure, metabolism and function.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is still the most rapidly evolving in vivo imaging modality. This 3-day workshop/course introduces cutting-edge techniques in microstructural, metabolic and functional imaging, with each of the three days dedicated to one of these focus areas. The course will be organized in hybrid format and will consist of

1. Educational lectures in the mornings (Biomedical Imaging Unit staff + invited international speakers)

2. Hands-on demonstrations in the early afternoons (BIU staff). For those not able to attend hands-on demonstrations, video material will be provided with similar content.

3. Scientific sessions with talks from invited international speakers and from participants selected based on submitted abstracts.

The workshop/course will also be part of the educational and scientific program provided by Finnish Bioimaging/EuroBioImaging infrastructure networks and will therefore have larger national and international target group.
