History of the ISMRM
On January 1, 1994, the Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and the Society of Magnetic Resonance Imaging
merged to form the Society of Magnetic Resonance (now named the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine). The first annual meeting of the merged Society was held in Dallas, Texas, USA, in March 1994. The most recent annual meeting was held in Singapore, 07-13 May 2016.
The merged International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine is an international, nonprofit, scientific association whose purpose is to promote communication, research, development, and applications in the field of magnetic resonance in medicine and biology and other related topics and to develop and provide channels and facilities for continuing education in the field. Its multidisciplinary membership of over 6,000 consists of clinicians, physicists, engineers, biochemists, and technologists.
In addition to its large scientific meetings, the Society holds workshops and publishes two journals, Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It also sponsors study groups on specific areas of scientific interest and chapters based on geographical location.
