Landman takes Outstanding Teacher Award for ISMRM talk

Of all the professors who spoke during a recent International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine course, the crowd appreciated Vanderbilt Engineering’s Bennett Landman the most.

Landman, assistant professor of electrical engineering, learned this week that he won the society’s Outstanding Teacher Award for his talk “Compressed Sensing for Fast Acquisition.” It was part of a course that explored state-of-the-art developments in the acquisition methods for diffusion-weighted MRI for diffusion tensor imaging.

“This selection is based on the course evaluations provided by participants, and, as the standards for all ISMRM courses were set high, it is a significant accomplishment,” the society’s education coordinator wrote Landman in announcing the award.

Nonprofit ISMRM promotes research and communication around magnetic resonance and opens doors for continuing education. It boasts more than 6,000 clinicians, physicists, engineers, biochemists, and technologists as members.

Landman taught at the society’s joint meeting with the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology in May in Milan, Italy.

Landman is also assistant professor of computer engineering, computer science, biomedical engineering and radiological sciences.
