Magnetic Resonance: From Qualitative Imaging to Quantitative Instrumentation

March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

This talk will explore the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in neuroimaging, with a focus on recent developments in quantitative (qMRI) imaging techniques, which aim to utilize MRI as an instrument for generating accurate and precise quantitative maps of intrinsic physical parameters. This talk is aimed at an audience with a technical background but not necessarily a background in medical imaging, and will cover a high-level overview of MRI, the image formation process, intrinsic and extrinsic contrast mechanisms, and the digital signal processing aspects of data fitting to generate quantitative parameter maps. Recent developments and novel research applications will be discussed, including methods to increase quantitative accuracy utilizing advanced calibration techniques, as well as the role machine learning can play in qMRI.
