BME PhD student Martin MacKinnon was the first place winner of the Bruker MRI Award for his entry iZTE-fMRI at the 2020 virtual meeting of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). Martin demonstrated how a zero-echo-time (ZTE) technique can overcome several limitations of traditional fMRI experiments. Also, he showed that iZTE fMRI experiments can produce functional images with markedly less susceptibility artifacts and acoustic noise than standard GRE techniques. Martin said, “It was a great experience to win the Bruker MRI award and be able to speak to the preclinical imaging community alongside leaders in the field.” Many congratulations Martin for this recognition!
