The neuroimaging and intervention research group consists of a diverse group of scientists and physicians that focus on the development of ultrafast magnetic resonance imaging methods for evaluating neurological and psychiatric diseases. A priority of this group is to translate these newly invented techniques rapidly into the clinical environment so that they may increase our understanding of brain diseases and improve patient care. Neuroimaging researchers from radiology collaborate with several departments across campus including psychiatry, neurology, neurological surgery, interventional neuroradiology, pediatric medicine, and biomedical engineering.
Feinberg Radiology’s research in neuroimaging includes:
- Development and clinical application of brain perfusion techniques using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Ultrafast time-resolved MR angiography
- 4D MRI flow methods for assessing vascular malformations
- High resolution imaging of the spinal cord
- Functional brain MRI to assess psychological and neurological diseases
- Transcranial magnetic resonance stimulation mapping of the brain function for treatment of stroke
- Development of novel implanted stents and coils for treating neurological vascular disease
