Title: “Visualizing the brain at 7 Tesla: Technical Developments and Clinical Applications”

Abstract: This talk will cover some novel radio frequency pulse and pulse sequence designs to overcome some of the main limitations of operating at high magnetic fields, thereby enabling high-resolution whole-brain anatomical, spectroscopic and diffusion imaging. Translation of these techniques to improve diagnosis, treatment and surgical planning for a range of neurological diseases and disorders will be discussed. Specific clinical applications that will be covered include: Improved localization of epileptogenic foci; imaging to reveal the neurobiology of depression; and development of imaging methods to better guide neurosurgical resection of brain tumors.
