Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) has become a mainstream technique to collect quantitative perfusion images since the consensus article in 2015 (Magnetic resonance in medicine, 73(1), 102-116). Since then, innovative ASL developments have been unrelenting, both in terms of technical consideration and clinical translation.
This weekend workshop is intended for the community of users and developers of ASL MRI techniques to network, share new findings, discuss developments & experience, with the intent of mapping out further technical recommendations for clinical translation. Among other topics, we will focus on sharing our experience and learning from each other about the following:
MRI Engineers/Physicists working on the area of arterial spin labeling and perfusion imaging.
Neuroscientists using ASL methods to examine brain function
Clinicians interested in MRI vascular and perfusion imaging
