Place: E302

Steven Wright, Professor and associate department head in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University, was elected vice president for member and student activities of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS). Below a preamble to his abstract:

“It is approaching 50 years since MRI was first described by Paul Lauterbur and Peter Mansfield. The seminal papers by those pioneers foresaw many of the advances in MRI during the decades since, and MRI is now considered by most to be a relatively mature technology. Fortunately for those of us who work in MRI, as well as those that benefit from its diverse diagnostic capabilities, the field continues to rapidly evolve. Much of the evolution is derived from advances in and commoditization of electronics technology. This talk will discuss progress in technology for MR systems, focusing on RF technology, and discuss a few active research areas that could shape future MR systems.”
