On the 29th of March, Eir organizes an internship market. In this market, several medical-oriented companies will be there with their projects. So, are you searching for an internship? Come by to our market! Also, there will be lunch. Don’t forget to subscribe.
a lunch with other Eir members! This time we have a bitterballenlunch. If you want to come, please let us know by registering.
On the 14th of Januari, from 15:00 until 16:00, the next Care & Cure Science Café will be held!
C3Te has invited Dr. Irena Zivkovic to talk about “Ultra-High Field MRI – How high can we go?”
Irena Zivkovic – Integrated Circuits (IC) and Electromagnetics (EM) group of Electrical Engineering.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most versatile medical imaging platform that provides superior soft tissue contrast for both body and brain imaging. It has become a favorite tool in the research settings, especially within neuroscience, because it can map not only the anatomy but also neuronal activation and function without the use of radiation. Scientists have worked on increasing the sensitivity of MRI, image contrast and spatial resolution. One obvious way to increase resolution is to increase the spin polarization via increasing the static magnetic field B0 in MRI. However, a consequence of a larger static magnetic field B0 is a higher Larmor frequency and a shorter wavelength. This increased frequency complicates RF electronics and detector design and therefore the technology developed for lower fields such as 3 Tesla is difficult to adapt and transfer directly to the ultra-high field 7 Tesla. This talk will discuss some of my recent developments of the RF technology that allowed high-resolution high-SNR ultra-high field imaging at 7T. I will also present my contributions to the B0 field shimming at 9.4T MRI.
Due to the Corona situation the Care & Cure Science Café will be in the form of a webinar (participants will receive the MS Teams link on the day of the webinar).
On Tuesday, the 16th of November, our 6th General Members Meeting will take place. This GMM will start at 20.00 in Flux 0.150 (time and location have changed). We expect to be done with the GMM at around 21:00. Unfortunately, due to the new Covid-19 regulations, the (de-)constitution of our new and old board with a drink in Het Walhalla has been canceled. We will try to find a new date sometime in the future.
The Board suggests the following agenda:
If there are any further questions, please don’t hesitate to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you all there!
