Research Summary

The research in Dr. Griswold's lab focuses primarily on the development of software and hardware for fast MRI imaging methods, in particular those related to multidetector imaging.  Since his initial work in this field, he has developed many parallel methods, in particular the GRAPPA method, as well as several other variants. His lab has also focused on the development of multitransmitter technology, especially those which use on-coil amplifier technology.
