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 non-invasively. 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 […]

Innovative ALS Imaging Biomarkers Come Closer to Patients

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have successfully used PET imaging to measure inflammation in the brain of a person living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which […]

Gordon Lecture Series Presentation: Some MRI Observations of Tongue Anatomy and Motion

 In a conference organized by the Gordon Center, Dr. Maureen Stone presented her lab’s recent studies of the tongue and the vocal tract during speech, swallowing and breathing. Using several forms of MRI such as DTI, deformation patterns and high-resolution cine MRI, Dr. Stone explored tongue muscle anatomy, function and mechanics as well as its internal motion patterns. Dr. Maureen […]

Molecular Imaging Pushes Boundaries of Personalized Medicine

Researchers at the Gordon Center for Medical Imaging are using molecular imaging and nuclear medicine technology to push the boundaries of personalized medicine. We talked to Dr. Rachid Akiki, MD, who is working closely with Dr. Marc Normandin, PhD, in the Gordon Center of the Radiology Department, to find out how. What is molecular imaging? […]
