i2i Workshop 2016

Meeting program, talk recordings, and poster PDFs.

In October 2016, more than 300 scientists, clinicians, engineers, and programmers from academia, medicine, and tech industry came together at the inaugural i2i Workshop to explore how the latest technical trends would transform workflow, hardware, software, and image interpretation in MR and PET.

The inaugural i2i Workshop was dedicated to the late Dr. Graham Wiggins, who led the RF engineering core at NYU School of Medicine from 2008 to 2016, and whose imagination, curiosity, rigor, and mentorship helped define and advance our vision for biomedical imaging.
