Engineering Scotland is the organisation for Engineering Societies and individual engineers in Scotland. Their first webinar online, The Innovation Lecture 2020, will be delivered by Professor David Porter: Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Human Brain at 7 Tesla: an Opportunity and a Challenge
David Porter is Professor of MRI Physics at the Imaging Centre of Excellence (ICE), Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology at the College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences, University of Glasgow. He holds a B.Sc. degree in physics from Sheffield University and a Ph.D. from King’s College London for work on magnetic resonance spectroscopy of human tumours in vivo. He worked as a postdoctoral scientist at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, developing MRI methods for the study of epilepsy and acute stroke in children. Subsequently, David had a long career in industry working for Siemens Healthcare in the UK and Germany. He has also worked at the Fraunhofer MEVIS Institute for Medical Image Computing in Bremen, where he led an MRI project that focused on motion correction, fast imaging and programming tools for the design of MRI sequences. In David’s current role at ICE, his interests involve the optimisation of MRI methods that aim to exploit the potential of 7 Tesla MRI to provide enhanced image quality in clinical and neuroscience applications.
