MRI machine

Research in our laboratory is focused on the development and evaluation of various novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques. We understand and apply MR Physics to exploit the variations in human anatomy and physiology to develop these techniques. The primary areas of research include non-contrast perfusion imaging using arterial spin labeling (ASL), enhanced visualization of the structures such as nerves using uniform fat/water separation, structural and ventilation imaging of the lungs using ultra-short echo time (UTE), and whole-body MRI techniques for cancer screening and staging.
