Clinical Interests

  • Abdominal and pelvic MRI: Application of fast volumetric imaging to adult and pediatric abdominal tumors, solid organ transplants, renal function, and inflammatory bowel disease.
  • Pediatric Cardiovascular MRI: MRI of congenital heart disease.
  • Pediatric Musculoskeletal MRI: Applications of fast high-resolution volumetric MRI to sports injuries, tumors, and inflammatory arthropathies.

Research Overview

Novel MRI hardware:
Many applications of body MRI may be improved or enabled by optimization of dedicated radiofrequency receiver arrays.  Thus, we are actively developing new approaches to design and construction of miniaturized radiofrequency receiver arrays for optimized and personalized MRI exams.


Fast MRI techniques:
To enable more children to undergo MRI and to enable higher resolution imaging in adults, we are developing and validating methods that combine advanced parallel imaging, compressed sensing, deep learning approaches to image reconstruction and analysis, motion correction, and higher dimensional data acquisition strategies.


Quantitative MRI methods:
Development and validation of accurate and precise cardiovascular flow and function measurements, noninvasive renal function assessment, and tumor therapy response.
