Speaker: Visiting in person – Prof. Benedikt Poser (Maastricht University)

Bio: Professor Benedikt Poser is a renowned scientist in the field of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), particularly known for his work on advanced neuroimaging techniques. He has significantly contributed to the development of methods such as multi-band imaging and functional MRI at ultra-high magnetic fields, enhancing the ability to study brain function and structure with greater precision. Prof. Poser is currently affiliated with Maastricht University in the Netherlands, where he continues to advance MRI technology and its applications in cognitive and clinical neuroscience.

Title: Advances in fMRI Data Acquisition Techniques

Abstract: I will first focus on echo-planar imaging readouts which have long been the workhorse for fMRI, but continue on a remarkable trajectory of imaging speed-up and data improvement. Non-Cartesian imaging is now gaining more interest for various functional contrasts, thanks to the flexibility in encoding and echo time choices. I will then also touch on other promising acquisition methods for laminar imaging, including line scan, FLASH readouts, as well as contrasts. The last part of the talk is focussed on how parallel RF transmission can add to image quality in 2D and 3D acquisitions and enable region selective excitations.
