Metabolic Imaging

The core of the metabolic imaging is the MIDAS project headed by Dr. Andrew Maudsley, PhD.
The projects include:

  • Advancing MR Spectroscopic Imaging Methods
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • ALS

Physiologic Imaging

The core of the physiologic imaging is the MRICP project headed by Dr. Noam Alperin, PhD.
The projects include:

  • MRICP - a method utilizing dynamic imaging of blood and CSF flow to and from the brain to derive clinically important parameters such as total cerebral blood flow and intracranial pressure.
  • CSF Studio - a comprehensive software for automated analyses of blood and CSF flow
  • Applications to Chiari Malformations, Hydrocephalus, IIH, and Aging

Functional Imaging

Functional imaging in the Department of Radiology has two programs conducted by Dr. Jung-Jiin Hsu, Ph.D. (Jason Hsu) to:

  • promote and support MR neuroimaging research at University of Miami;
  • develop novel quantitative MRI methodologies for functional imaging. Current focus of the development is to utilize the longitudinal relaxation rate of the magnetization for clinically feasible measurements such that the relaxation rate and quantities derived from it can be used as reliable imaging biomarkers. Areas of clinical application are functional imaging of the brain, non-invasive tissue oximetry, characterization of the tissue composition, quantitative blood perfusion measurement, etc.

Structural Imaging and Imaging Processing

Brain anatomy is the framework for the metabolic, physiologic and functional imaging. An advanced image processing laboratory has been created to provide tools for segmentation and registration of these multi MR modalities data into a common framework.
