Research Overview

Dr. Shin has developed a unique Sleep MRI protocol with physiologic monitoring (oral/nasal airflow, respiratory effort monitoring, etc) to evaluate the dynamic airway collapse in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients. Dr. Shin research interests also includes using real-time MRI imaging for other clinical applications as evaluating Crohns disease and small bowel dysmotility.

Sleep MRI for Obstructive Sleep Apnea:
Dr. Shin has developed a unique Sleep MRI protocol with physiologic monitoring (oral/nasal airflow, respiratory effort monitoring, etc) to evaluate the dynamic airway collapse in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients. Utilizing custom-made MRI pulse sequences and software, continuous, multiplanar MR imaging can be performed in sleep apnea patients under natural physiologic sleep. Currently, the clinical utility of Sleep MRI is being evaluated; additional applications of sleep MRI can include further understanding the dynamics of airway collapse, development of minimally invasive OSA treatments, and evaluation/trouble shooting of existing OSA therapeutics.
