Wewanttocelebrate 10 yearsofSmall Animal MRI in Münster. On theoccasionofthe 10thanniversaryofthe Experimental MR Group at the Department of Clinical Radiology at the Medical Faculty Münster, weinviteyoutojointhe1st Small Animal MRI Symposium.
This symposiumisintendedtocreate a platformforexchange in the European smallanimal MRI community. The focusis on presentationanddiscussionoflatestresults, majordevelopmentsandfuturedirections in thefieldofsmallanimal MRI. Furthermore, wewanttoestablish a forumforexchangeanddiscussionoftechnicalproblemsandtheirsolutions, regardinghardwareandsoftware, instrumentation, andparticularchallengesofanimalexperimentation. Forthispurposethesymposiumaims at gatheringrepresentativesandcontributionsfrom all groups in Europe andbeyond, working on smallanimal MRI.
Weareexcitedtoorganize a stimulatingmeetingandlookforwardtowelcomingyou in Münster.
