Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and Scientific Program Committee, we proudly invite you to the 2nd International Congress on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (ICMRI 2014) in conjunction with the 19th Annual Scientific Meeting of KSMRM (KSMRM 2014), which will be held in Seoul, Korea, from March 28 through 29, 2014.

The theme of the conference in this year is "Explore the Future with MRI." With continuous progresses in MRI technologies, study of tissue or organ dynamics, from tissue characterization to function or physiology-related imaging, becomes more common using diffusion, perfusion, or angiography in various organs including the heart. In this regard, we are very honored and delighted to have Dr. Juergen Hennig, a legendary scientist who invented, among many others, RARE (also known as Fast Spin Echo) imaging and Dr. Yeon Hyeon Choe, a world recognized pioneering clinician in the cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging for the plenary lecturers.

A full two-day program is provided with 5 parallel scientific sessions. Among them a one-day session is fully devoted to education for residents, fellows, and young scientists. There will be also many invited lectures from distinguished experts in their fields for discussing emerging technologies. The conference will surely provide special and unusual opportunities to link scholars from all over the world, to exchange ideas, and to discuss every aspect of technologies as well as various clinical applications of MRI.

Please prepare to join this exciting conference. We will look forward to seeing you in Seoul, Korea!
