Magnetic Resonance Imaging: New Frontiers in Speed and Precision’

Since the invention of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the 1970s, there has been a continuous development of the methodology, enabling improved image quality, shorter scan times and higher spatial resolutions. Although, MRI is now a mature medical imaging technology, the rapid pace of innovation persists and recent years have seen the introduction a number of new techniques, which are having a substantial impact in a range of applications. This lecture will review some of these developments, showing for example how scan-acceleration methods are dramatically reducing scan times and how real-time correction algorithms are improving data quality and precision in quantitative imaging studies.
