The introduction of the new Magnetom Vision system means a considerable progress in MR imaging technology. It is a commercially available system with three full functional high gradients (25mT/m) and EPI booster capability. This reflects a tremendous challenge of fast and ultrafast MR imaging techniques. This new technology opens up new wide horizons for many MR applications, which were limited before to very few experimental installations. This proceedings book summarizes the presentations on the First Magnetom Vision User Conference, which was held in June 1995 at Bochum, Germany. It reflects the latest advances in a non-experimental clinical setting.
