ASL Dinner at ISMRM 2018

25/06/2018 in Newsletter

Great thanks to all participants!
About 80 persons from around the world
joint the ASL Network Dinner and discussed enthusiastically
about ASL during the designated scientific session before the dinner.
And also, Paris spoilt us throughout the week!

A special thanks goes out to our sponsors:

  • Gold Standard Phantoms Limited (United Kingdom), who brought their first Quantitative ASL Perfusion Reference (QASPER) phantom into the community last year, provide various MRI calibration services independent of vendor or system.
  • mediri GmbH (Germany) is specialized on support of clinical trials from imaging over data management to analysis, extended software solutions and medical imaging.
  • Subtle Medical Inc (United States): AI technologies define new standard for MRI: faster, safer and smarter.

ASL networking at ISMRM 2016

SUNDAY: ASL-Dinner sponsored by mediri (only with invitation/registration)

THURSDAY: Scientific Session on ASL (Room 324-326)


Dear ASL network users,

I wish you a happy and successful year 2016!
As Klaus already announced in the last ASL newsletter we will have some changes for you in 2016! And, most important, we need your help in this. Since our COST Action ran out in Dec 2015, we have to keep up our ASL community by other means. We want to do this by re-activating the homepage and start lively discussions. We would like to have an active forum and maybe a wiki, as well. This is not setup yet, but we are working on it and will come back to you soon. So, stay tuned!

Best wishes,

A report on the last 4 years of COST Action with all activities and achievements listed can be found on the ASL-network page:

Dear all, 

This new and revamped website concerns everyone who is interested in Arterial Spin Labelling (or Labeling ;-)). Whether you are a researcher, an MRI physicist, a radiologist, a clinician, a biologist, hopefully, you will find here a community of people interested in bringing this wonderful method forward. You might like to use it as a simple clinical tool, in any organ of the body; as an interesting method in functional brain activation studies; or to follow the course of diseases in patients or animal models. We have all something to learn from you, and potentially some information to help you.


Welcome to this new website of the ASL Network, of which some of the activities have recently been funded by a European COST Action ( Do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to join, it’s cost- and hassle-free!


Best Regards,
