    Research Summary

    The goal of our group is to develop new MRI methods that provide a quantitative underlay for evaluation of tissue/pathology, and to translate these techniques to patient care. The work has one foot in basic science and the other in clinical science. We span MR acquisitions and image reconstruction, application development, and clinical evaluation. Areas of focus include MR relaxometry, perfusion and diffusion, body MRI, and vascular MRI.
