Video from ISMRM 2022: Thoralf Niendorf on MRI field strength

May 16, 2022

Is the future all about low-field MRI, or will high-field scanners continue to have an important role to play in clinical imaging? For answers, we caught up with Prof. Thoralf Niendorf, PhD, at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). He remains an enthusiastic supporter of ultrahigh-field MRI.

Niendorf is professor for experimental ultrahigh-field MRI at the Charité in Berlin and head of the Berlin Ultra High Field facility at Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine. His group's research concentrates on the development of MR methodology and MR technology with a focus on new ways of mapping and probing morphology, function, physiology, and metabolism.

The Berlin team also analyzes the benefits and challenges of ultrahigh-field imaging to advance cardiovascular, neurovascular, molecular, and other MRI applications.
