Accessible MRI workshop report - 2019
This page is intended to have discussions related to the first ISMRM workshop on accessible MRI leading to the manuscript/abstract.
The inputs collated on this page would be leveraged towards an ISMRM abstract and an MRM submission.
All contributors would be duly recognized as co-authors sorted by alphabetical order of their last name.
Significant contributors would be recognized as joint-corresponding authors.
