MRI Safety/Compatibility for Medical Implants
The workshop is an all-day event for engineers and managers interested in learning about MRI technology and safety/compatibility with medical implants. Attendees will learn practical approaches used to set requirements, design and test the MRI safety/compatibility of medical implants, including associated regulatory standards and practical experience from the field. This workshop will provide a unique opportunity to learn how to incorporate MRI safety/compatibility technology into medical devices and to network with leaders in the field of medical devices and MRI safety.
A continental breakfast, snacks and lunch buffet will be provided for free.
