Bradley-Alavi Student Fellowship

Nicolas Guehl was awarded the SNMMI Bradley-Alavi Student Fellowship based on his proposal “Development of methods for simultaneous rest-stress myocardial blood flow (MBF) measurements.” The fellowship is funded by the Education and Research Foundation for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and is designed to support research activities in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging for three […]

Neuroplastic Changes in Blind Individuals

  This article was initially published by the RSNA Daily Bulletin on November 30, 2016. Dr. Laura Ortiz-Terán is a clinical radiologist and neuroimaging research scientist at the MGH Gordon Center. She works with Dr. Jorge Sepulcre to investigate the neuroplastic changes occurring in blind individuals, adults and children, using graph theory based resting-state functional […]

Novel Radioligand for Brain Imaging

Central nervous system demyelination represents the pathological hallmark of multiple sclerosis (MS) and is thought to contribute to other neurological conditions including traumatic brain injury, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. The ability to assess demyelination quickly and quantitatively is crucial for the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. As current imaging approaches for demyelination rely on […]

Seminar: Smart Photonic Materials for Theranostic Applications

According to Dr. Sei Kwang Hahn from Pohang University of Science and Technology in South Korea, smart photonic materials have a variety of biomedical applications for biosensing, molecular imaging, surgery and therapies. In a conference organized by the Gordon Center, he discussed his research efforts to develop melanoidin nanoparticles for in vivo noninvasive photoacoustic mapping of sentinel […]
