  • 103: Advanced cardiac magnetic resonance perfusion imaging

    The aim of this project is to develop the next generation tools for advanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) perfusion imaging. Novel CMR imaging sequences will be designed and implemented for both qualitative and quantitative perfusion imaging. This work will also involves the development of novel quantitative CMR reconstruction techniques. These new methods will be validated using our unique perfusion phantom and in patients. More...

  • 113: Towards real-time optimization of parameter settings for Sonazoid™ enhanced ultrasound imaging

    The project will investigate the acoustic properties of the microbubble contrast agent Sonazoid™ with the aim of developing real-time adaptive strategies for improved image quality. Techniques for improvement of both image contrast and image resolution will be explored. In addition, methods for determining quantitative flow parameters will also be studied. More...
