Invitation

Dear colleagues,

It is again our pleasure to invite you to the 4th Interventional MRI Symposium, organized by the
Department of Diagnostic Radiology, University of Leipzig, Germany in cooperation with the
Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women`s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, and the
Department of Radiology, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Case Western Reserve University,
Cleveland. The meeting is endorsed by the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine
(ISMRM) and the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB.


Following our Call for Abstracts we received more than 100 submissions for oral and poster
presentations covering a wide range of interventional MR topics. After a peer review process by the
scientific program committee, we constructed a balanced program of 73 oral and 41 poster
presentations.


Having long played an important role in Europe`s commercial and intellectual history, Leipzig`s
glorious past and its current renaissance are equally palpable. The famous writer Gotthold Ephraim
Lessing summarized in the 18th century his experience with the city: “I am coming to Leipzig, a place
where the whole world can be seen in miniature.” And as the 21st century gathers pace, the city is
known as one of the most dynamic places in Europe. After the mass demonstrations in autumn 1989
ushered in the Peaceful Revolution and the German Reunification the development of the city can be
summed up in the slogan “Leipzig kommt!”.


We are looking forward to seeing you in Leipzig!
.
