Workshop on PET-MRI
Date and Time
PET and fMRI provide two separate and partially overlapping methods for neuroimaging. While PET relies on metabolic processing as measured by the dissipation of radioactive isotopes, MRI measures changes in blood oxygenation level (BOLD). Each method is useful for providing a quantitative metrics for brain function and dysfunction useful in the diagnosis and understanding of clinical brain disorders and normal development. The combination of methods adds values where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Much work in advancing research with combined PET-MRI has been done, and the invited experts in this workshop discuss these advances and avenues of research.
About the Center for Multimodal Neuroimaging
The goal of the Center for Multimodal Neuroimaging is to bring together NIMH neuroimaging, processing, and neuromodulation expertise so that communication channels are further enhanced between cores, sections, units, individual staff scientists, and, importantly, users. The goals of this level of integration would be to foster collaborative bridges, create a centralized view of what’s available to users, generate questions that lend themselves to cross-modal investigation and integration, allow efficient exchange of practical information and new ideas.

We will have a follow up roundtable discussion with the speakers on Zoom this fall. Anyone interested in participating or asking questions at the virtual roundtable is encouraged to register .
