Low Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Abstract

We are interested in novel techniques of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in particular low field imaging using Helium-3 gas which may provide a powerful new tool for the study of lung physiology and disease. Our research involves in-vivo MRI studies as well as inquiry into the basic physics of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). We also dedicate significant effort to the design and construction of specialized hardware needed to perform low field MRI and NMR. We collaborate with researchers in radiology, physics, and engineering from Canada and abroad.
