Dr Joshua Kaggie, a post-doctoral researcher, of the University of Cambridge will present a large body of research at The International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM)-  European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB) conference in Paris which runs from 16-21 of June 2018. Dr Kaggie is an author or co-author of eleven accepted abstracts (four of which are talks), joint with Dr Frances Henson and Dr Martin Graves of the University of Cambridge.

Notably, Josh’s abstract entitled “Magnetic Resonance Tracking of Iron-Labeled Stem Cells After Osteochondral Defect in Ovine Model” presents results from several studies which will be employed within STARSTEM.

His presentations also include:  “Automated Textural Classification of Osteoarthritis Magnetic Resonance Images”, “Repeatability of 2D FISP MR Fingerprinting in the Brain at 1.5T and 3.0 T”, “Ultrashort Echo Time Imaging of the Osteochondral Junction in Subjects with Knee Osteoarthritis and Age-matched Healthy Volunteers”, “T1 and T2 Mapping of Delayed Gadolinium Enhancement in Osteoarthritis with MR Fingerprinting”, “The relationship of R1rho to aqueous pH and macromolecular density”, and “Dynacontrast-enhanced MR imaging in early stage knee osteoarthritis: A test-retest repeatability study”.

ISMRM is a multi-disciplinary, nonprofit association that promotes innovation, development, and application of magnetic resonance techniques in medicine and biology. The ISMRM community is comprised of clinicians, physicists, engineers, biochemists, and technologists united by a common interest in the ongoing dialogue between the scientific and clinical communities. The ESMRMB is a non-profit Society, which aims to support educational activities and research in the widest sense in the field defined by the Society’s name. The ESMRMB is open to physicians, engineers, scientists, radiographers and other individuals who are interested in the developments or the introduction of magnetic resonance techniques in the fields of medicine and biology.
