ISMRM'16 was held in Singapore. UMRAM had a strong appearance there.

Berk Silemek received magna cum laude merit award for his presentation entitled Subacute In-Vivo RF Heating of an Active Medical Implantable Device Under MRI Using Temperature Sensor Implant. 

Cemre Ariyurek's traditional poster was selected among the top ten most popular abstracts. Her poster is entitled "Experimental Validation of High Shear Wave Displacement at Mode Frequencies in MR Elastography".

Koray Ertan worked on the challenge on simultaneous multislice imaging and become 5th. ASELSAN researcher, Emre Kopanoglu become 6th on the same challenge. Emre Kopanoglu become 5th in the pTx challenge.

Congratulations to all.

 In addition, Ergin Atalar presented Peripheral Nerve Stimulation, Implants & Devices: Safe Use & Considerations for MRI in the educational sessions. He also chaired the session. Ergin Atalar was a chairperson for the interventional MRI study group. He also chair the study groups session.
