The body imaging research group focuses on the clinical application of novel techniques using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT). A major focus of this group has been the application of non-invasive magnetic resonance elastography for assessing liver and pancreatic disease. Body imaging researchers from radiology collaborate with departments across campus including gastroenterology, gastrointestinal surgery, transplant surgery, hepatology, and biomedical engineering.
Feinberg Radiology’s research in body imaging includes:
- Magnetic Resonance Elastography development and application
- Diffusion weighted imaging of liver tumors
- MRI assessment of hepatocellular carcinoma post radioembolization
- MR perfusion and flow imaging of liver tumors
- Magnetic resonance elastography and biomarker assessment in liver transplant recipients
