ASL Network Dinner during the ISMRM in Sydney will be on Sunday, 19th April

Corona is all around. Sadly, the upcoming ISMRM and the ASL Network Dinner were cancelled due to SARS-CoV-2 measures. We are working on the next edition for Paris… stay tuned and healthy”

Perfusion Open Source Initiative – join now!

Are you working on perfusion MRI post-processing and do you have code to share? Do you feel like you are spending ridiculous amounts of time writing code that other people have written many times before? Would you like to get more out of the hours you spend writing code by sharing it with others? Do you want to help make our science more reproducible?

ASL Dinner at ISMRM 2018

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!
