Upcoming event:
You’re invited to a seminar by Dr Christoph Kolbitsch, formerly at KCL, now leading the Quantitative MRI group at PTB, Berlin. His talk will cover his work on cardiac PET/MR, involving novel MR  sequences to be able to get diagnostic quality MR images together with motion information, which is then used for PET motion correction.
Title: Motion correction for cardiac PET-MR 
Date and time: Thursday 30 January, 4-5pm.
Venue: UCL Bentham House LG17 Lecture Room
Please check the CCP PETMR website for information on joining remotely, and up-to-date information.
More information can be found here.
