Research theme

Phase information can provide various image contrast: (a) vessel-enhanced image, b) tissue- enhanced image

Our researches include developing new analyzing methods for various medical images and assessing the usefulness of these methods in clinical practice. A major topic of our research is the development of novel MR imaging sequences and post-processing techniques, specifically 1) application for diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease with phase information of amyloid plaque, 2) research of imaging biomarkers in various diseases using quantitative information such as diffusion and perfusion MRI.
