The History and Technology of Ultra High Field MRI Magnets

Simon Pittard is Director of the Magnet Division at Tesla Engineering Ltd. (formerly he was at Agilent, Varian and the company he started, Magnex Scientific). He is the world's foremost expert on design and construction of high field and ultra high field MRI magnets, his company having produced as good as all human ultra high field magnets in the world. He will be in Glasgow for a day on October 22nd to give a seminar and for discussions. His talk is aimed at a very broad audience (clinicians, academics, physicists and engineers), and therefore the talk is not too technical, but it is a very good introduction for anyone interested in ultra high field MRI.
