The Author

 eter A. Rinck is a University Professor of Ra­dio­lo­gy and Magnetic Resonance and has a Doctorate in History of Medicine.

After a classical school education he at­tended medical school in Berlin (Free Uni­versity of Berlin) and served his internship and re­si­den­cy in radiology, nuclear medicine and ra­dia­tion therapy at Charlot­tenburg University Hospital in Berlin.

Afterwards, until 1983, he was involved in the very early development of mag­ne­tic resonance imaging as Senior Research Associate at the State Uni­ver­si­ty of New York at Stony Brook where he worked in Paul C. Lauterbur's research group (Nobel Prize in Medicine 2003). The first version of this textbook was written at this time.

Subsequently Rinck worked as physician-in-charge of one of the first two gov­ern­ment spon­so­red MR machines in Wiesbaden, Germany. From 1986 until 2012 he was Adjunct and Visiting Pro­fes­sor at the School of Medicine and Pharmacy of the University of Mons-Hainaut in Belgium. Between 1987 and 1994 he was Pro­fes­sor of Radiology and Magnetic Resonance, University of Trondheim, Norway and head of Europe's biggest MR research facility at that time.

Since 1982 Rinck is Chairman of the European Magnetic Resonance Forum, EMRF, and since 2008 President of the Council of The Round Table Foundation, TRTF. He is also Chairman of the Selection Committees of the the Pro Academia Prize and of the European Magnetic Reso­nance Award.
