Who are we?

There is an increasing interest in using diffusion MR imaging as an investigative tool within the Irish research and clinical community. The Irish Diffusion Imaging Group (IDIG) has recently been established to bring together interested groups in order to share ideas, foster collaborations and highlight ongoing research using diffusion based MR imaging across Ireland.

What is our goal?

The aim of IDIG is to hold meetings and workshops and to provide a forum for discussion about all aspects of diffusion imaging, ranging from the practicalities of data acquisition and its optimisation, image analysis and post-processing, and research and clinical applications including cardiac and muscle imaging, and research on the biological basis of psychiatric and neurological disorders. 

How can we help?

Contact us with requests for special educational topics or training, to find someone with particular experience in ireland that might help you in your research, or to request workshops on any diffusion related research topic.

Who should join?

SIGN UP!! To keep up-to-date on IDIG developments and planned IDIG meetings, please click here to sign up to our mailing list. We have at least one symposium or research day each year which includes invited guest lectures by international experts in the diffusion MR field. See past event page for links to agenda and past speakers slides.

IDIG aims to be a multi-disciplinary group which would be of particular interest to:

  • MR physicists
  • Radiologists
  • Neurologists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Radiographers
  • Neuroimagers
  • Image-processing engineers
  • Computer scientists
  • Neuroscientists
  • Biomedical scientists

At present we are seeking new members to join IDIG who wish to learn more about using diffusion imaging as a research or clinical tool in Ireland. 

If you would like to join IDIG, please contact either Dr Kathleen Curran or Dr Dara Cannon or sign up to our mailing list (above).
