Report from ISMRM: Organizers emphasize clinical themes

April 15, 2009 Diagnostic Imaging. Report from ISMRM: Organizers emphasize clinical themes By James Brice Innovation has always been the name of the game for the annual meeting of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. The 17th annual meeting beginning Saturday in Honolulu again showcases MRI science in action. But for this meeting, organizers added new features emphasizing MRI's clinical applications and capitalizing on new communications technologies to encourage interactions between presenters and attendees at the show. Following ISMRM tradition, the program committee, headed by Dr. Margaret Hall-Craggs, is devoting day-long sessions on Saturday and Sunday to clinical refresher courses. Beginning with the annual Mansfield lecture on Monday, the conference shifts more toward the cutting-edge aspects of instrumentation and basic applications development. Yet the clinical flavor will persist through a clinical intensive course that is woven through the schedule through Wednesday. Advances in Clinical Musculoskeletal, Breast, and Body MRI will be presented during Saturday and Sunday. The Saturday program also includes an option of a full day of body MRI training. Sunday's course will examine imaging of the lower extremities. In addition to the plenary and scientific sessions, attendees can opt for practical training in MRI of the musculoskeletal system, breast, body, and soft tissues and MR angiography from Monday to Wednesday.
