Dear colleagues and members of the MR-EM forum, we would invite you to the annual meeting of the MR-EM simulation forum.

The meeting will take place at the Erwin L. Hahn Institute in Essen on 9. Dec. 2012.

Erwin L. Hahn Institut Essen
UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe Zollverein
Leitstand Kokerei Zollverein
Arendahls Wiese 199

This year we would encourage the participants to present their own MR-EM projects in a short oral presentation (15-20min) and discus it with the audience for possible difficulties in realization and evaluation. This could be a finished project, a problem you are facing or another work in progress where you would like to get some ideas and feedback.


12.30 Accreditation and Welcome Snacks

13.00 Welcome and Greeting

Oral Presentations of Work in Progress Projects (talk with discussion):

13.15 Simulation of a Dual-Row Transmit Array for 9.4 T Neuroimaging
Jens Hoffmann, MPI for Biological Cybernetics, Tübingen

13.45 OpenEMS Project Overview
Thorsten Liebig, Chair of Theoretical Electrical Engineering (ATE), University of Duisburg-Essen

14.15 Simulation of a double tuned 1H/31P RF coil for the human calf at 7 T
Sigrun Goluch, MR Centre of Excellence of Medical University Vienna

14.45 Simulation of Travelling Wave Application for 7 T Primate MRI
Johannes Mallow, Department of Biometry and Medical Informatics, University of Magdeburg

15.15 Break

15.30 Open Discussion

Main Topics:

Multi transmit SAR calculation (Worst Case SAR)
Verification and evaluation of simulation results
measured B1 field for E-field prediction
Modeling in field-simulation

17.00 End of the Meeting

The participation is free.

Registration deadline: 1. Dec. 2012
