PTB safety rocks the house


Successful day for PhD students Johannes Petzold (left) and Berk Silemek (right). At the meeting of the study group on MRI Safety at this year's annual meeting of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) in Toronto, ON, Canada, both were awarded a study group award for their excellent contributions to the field. Johannes received the third prize for his work on "Experimental and numerical calibration procedure for RF safety evaluation of implant-embedded sensors" while Berk's presentation "A geometrical approach to rapidly evaluate and optimize pTx transmission vectors for imaging and RF safety of implants" was even honored with the study group's first prize. Congratulations to both of them.
