Workshop Goals

This workshop will bring together members of the academic community to discuss recent advances and challenges in double-PFG Diffusion MRI. 

All invited participants will give a short presentation of their research in the field. The objective of the workshop is to identify primary applications for the double-PFG diffusion methodology, discuss the theoretical framework used, disseminate theoretical findings of all invited researchers, as well as finding strategies to shorten the acquisition times in order to make the methodology clinically feasible. 

The space at the conference site is limited. At the meeting we will initiate the planning for a followup workshop that can hold a larger group.
