Towards Realizing Virtual Clinical Trials for Optimization and Evaluation of Breast Imaging Systems
It is essential that breast cancer be detected at its earliest stages for better prognosis. Advanced imaging techniques and systems are constantly under development and study to improve the screening and detection of breast ...
Magnetic Resonance Imaging Biomarkers of Renal Structure and Function
The kidney's major role in filtration depends on its high blood flow, concentrating mechanisms, and biochemical activation. The kidney's greatest strengths also lead to vulnerability for drug-induced nephrotoxicity and other ...
Identifying Vulnerable Plaques with Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse Imaging
The rupture of arterial plaques is the most common cause of ischemic complications including stroke, the fourth leading cause of death and number one cause of long term disability in the United States. Unfortunately, because ...
Diffusion Tensor Imaging Biomarkers of Brain Development and Disease
Understanding the structure of the brain has been a major goal of neuroscience research over the past century, driven in part by the understanding that brain structure closely follows function. Normative brain maps, or atlases, ...
Translational Imaging of Pulmonary Gas-Exchange Using Hyperpolarized 129Xe Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary diseases still rely on pulmonary function tests that offer archaic or insensitive biomarkers of lung structure and function. As a consequence, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ...
