Body Magnetic Resonance Research Group

The goal of our research is to develop novel Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) methods with an emphasis on the extraction of quantitative imaging biomarkers. Our group has an expertise on developing MRI acquisition, reconstruction and signal modeling techniques for measuring tissue diffusion, relaxation, magnetic susceptibility and fat content properties. The developed methods are being translated into clinical studies for improving the diagnosis, the therapy monitoring, and the understanding of disease pathophysiology in the diseases of the musculoskeletal system (e.g. osteoporosis, neuropathies, neuromuscular diseases), in metabolic dysfunction (e.g. obesity, diabetes, cancer cachexia) and in body oncology (e.g. abdominal and musculoskeletal tumors).
