Technology development of magnetic resonance imaging sequences Technology development of magnetic resonance imaging sequences

Abstract:
The goal of this project is to develop and implement new and state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences to better visualize tissue viability in the heart. It will be performed in collaboration with Hospital Clínic de
Barcelona and General Electric Healthcare, working on a research-dedicated MRI scanner available at the Cardiology Unit. The student will need to familiarize with the MRI acquisitions and sequences, read images and document the state-of-the-art. Subsequently, some of the most promising methods should be implemented. 3D myocardial delay enhancement or motion corrected T1 mapping sequences will be targeted.
