Neuro Symposium
Advances in High-Field Brain Imaging – celebrating the arrival of Canada’s first whole body 7T MRI

May 17, 2019

Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre
The Neuro, Montreal, QC, Canada

Program Co-Chairs: Richard Hoge, Amir Shmuel, Julien Doyon

The Neuro’s McConnell Brain Imaging Centre will host a one-day scientific symposium to celebrate the arrival of Canada's first whole-body 7T MRI scanner. This symposium follows the ISMRM meeting in Montreal. The themes include methods and applications of structural, functional and spectroscopy high-field MRI in human subjects and animal models. The symposium will feature talks by internationally recognized experts in ultra-high field MRI, focusing on methods and research applications in neuroscience. All day refreshments including cocktails will be offered. Guided visits to the new 7T facility will be available to non-Montreal-based attendees.

The McConnell Brain Imaging Centre is a leading multimodal imaging data acquisition and analysis centre for studying brain function and disease. It is part of a unique research and clinical environment – The Neuro - Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital – the first open science institute in the world. The cutting edge large bore 7 Tesla MRI scanner is the latest addition to The Neuro’s current brain imaging systems of high-resolution PET, MEG, 3 Tesla MRI as well as small animal MRI and micro-PET.
