Primary AppointmentProfessor of Research, Radiology
Magnetic Resonance Investigations mainly Hyperpolarized Gas and 3D Brain Imaging
Since 1996 we have pursued research in Hyperpolarized Noble Gas MR as well, employing laser-polarized Helium-3 and Xenon-129 to study lung ventilation, virtual colonoscopy, and tissue perfusion. At this time we are investigating a series of asthma and COPD subjects to evaluate the clinical potential of this new lung imaging technique.
