diffusion MRI

About half of our brain is composed of white matter - millions of fibers that act as data lines between distant brain regions. Capturing the full wiring diagram of the brain can be regarded as one of the great scientific challenges of our time. In this talk, you will learn about a special type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - called diffusion MRI - that can reveal white matter structure in the living brain in unprecedented detail. You will discover how UAntwerpen is improving this cutting edge technique as well as using it to study neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Location: Kapitein Zeppos, Vleminckveld 78, 2000 Antwerpen

Date: Wednesday 16th May 2018; doors open 6.30pm, event 7pm-10pm

Language: English

Speaker: Dr. Ben Jeurissen, UAntwerpen

We are very excited to announce that the first official MRtrix3 workshop will be held this year in Paris, France (June 22-24), immediately after the main ISMRM meeting.

This 2½ day hands-on workshop will cover the theory and practice of diffusion analysis, covering the range of techniques available within MRtrix3.

After completing this course, participants should be able to process, analyze, and visualize their own diffusion MRI data sets using MRtrix3 tools.

See the main announcement for full details and registration.
