UCL will host a symposium at the Birkbeck Clore Management Centre which will focus on the development of analysis methods for PET/MRI. The symposium is directed especially to persons who have an interest in the development of novel methods of analysis using PET/MRI and should be of interest to scientific staff in centres establishing PET/MRI in the UK.
Dates: 21-23 September, 2016
Venue: Birkbeck, University of London, Clore Management Centre, Malet Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 7HX
Organisers: Brian Hutton, Kris Thielemans, David Atkinson, Simon Arridge, Sebastien Ourselin
Registration: FREE: limited to 120 attendees (see registration details below)
Sponsored by: UCL EPSRC PET/MRI and CCP grants
This symposium will focus on development of analysis methods for PET/MRI with the following objectives:
- To present relevant current research at UCL and other centres
- To provide a forum for networking and future planning
- To encourage national collaboration on PET/MRI methods
The symposium is directed especially to persons who have an interest in the development of novel methods of analysis using PET/MRI and should be of interest to scientific staff in centres establishing PET/MRI in the UK.
