Dr. Schmalbrock is an Emeritus Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology at The Ohio State University.
Abstract: The presentation will introduce the basic physics principles underlying Magnetic Resonance Imaging. This includes a brief discussion of what produces contrast between different parts of the body, how the RF signal is spatially localized and what hardware is used in MRI systems. Next I will show some examples of typical clinical use of MRI. The presentation will conclude with examples of MRI research, including technical developments for new, more tissue-specific image contrast, as well as application of MRI for answering medical research questions.
Lunch will be served from 11:50 am to 12:10 pm.
