Project: Motion Correction for MRTI and Thermal Therapy
The primary focus of my research is to develop image processing techniques to extend real-time magnetic resonance thermal imaging (MRTI) and MR-guided procedures beyond current practice to organs and tissues plagued by breath or other motion. My research involves exploring methods for robust MR visualization of thermal therapy and reliable minimization of motion artifacts. Improvements will be integrated into a commercially available FDA cleared product for use in patients. Construction of a motion phantom will allow for techniques to be evaluated against phantom data, as well as patient and animal imaging data.
