Researchers of the MBCIU attended the Joint Annual Meeting ISMRM-ESMRMB 2018 held in Paris, France. Warda Syeda received the Magna cum Laude Award from her abstract titled ‘A Continuum of Components: Robust Parameter Mapping in Sodium MRI’. In this work, she developed a signal model for understanding the biophysical underpinning of the MRI signal from the sodium nuclei, with the purpose of developing novel biomarkers for healthy and diseased brain tissue.
Myrte Strik was awarded 2nd place in the White Matter Study Group at ISMRM 2018
On the 1st of September 2018 Senior Molecular Imaging Technician Mr Rob William presented a Master Class on Cardiac Nuclear Medicine at the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nuclear Medcine.
