Accelerating Data Acquisition for Anatomical, Physiological, and Functional MRI


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides various methods for imaging anatomical, physiological, and functional information of our body noninvasively. In a conference organized by the Gordon Center, Dr. Sung-Hong Park, from the South Korean university of KAIST, discussed the latest imaging modalities for acceleration of data acquisition in terms of pulse sequences and image reconstructions. These modalities include (i) acquisition of time-of-flight MR angiogram and blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) MR venogram, (ii) application of compressed sensing to arterial spin labeling, a non-invasive perfusion MRI technqiue, (iii) simultaneous acquisiton of blood perfusion and magnetization transfer (MT) with 2D inter-slice blood flow and MT effects, and (iv) acceleration of functional MRI with compressed sensing.

Dr. Sung-Hong Park is Associate Professor at the Department of Bio & Brain Engineering at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). He was the guest speaker at a lecture organized by the MGH Gordon Center.
