316 - Secrets of the Scanner: Be a Biomedical Engineer for a Day
Saturday, February 15, 2020
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
wondered what all the noise is in an MRI scanner, why it's so hard to see
anything in ultrasound images, or which medical imaging techniques use
radiation? Or, perhaps you're curious about the untapped potential in high powered MRI scanners, or about how low powered MRI could make imaging more affordable and accessible? Better yet, want to hear about the potential for MRI and ultrasound to work together toward relieving the need for opioids in pain management? Join Vanderbilt’s Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering, PhD, and USN parent WILL GRISSOM at the Vanderbilt Institute of Imaging Science. You will learn about how the most widely used medical imaging scanners work and get to play with working desktop models of CT scanners, ultrasound and MRI machines.
