FPGA board for sampling during MRI

Magnetic Resonance Acquisition

We do research improving MR scanning, e.g. with respect to speed, robustness, sensitivity or specificity. Hardware and sequences for imaging and spectroscopy are developed and applied. Tissue microstructure is a particular focus.

The employed methods range from fundamental physics to advanced data processing techniques needed to extract important physiological parameters from the measurements. The targets of the development include imaging, spectroscopy, and multi-modal acquisition, e.g. for muscle and brain studies. Ultra high field MRI and MRS are a particular focus.

Topics include tissue microstructure elucidation, multi-nuclear sequence development, UHF coil development, motion correction and detection, spectroscopic imaging, and high-precision phase-sensitive imaging for mapping of current densities, for example.

Our research is carried out from both DTU, where we have a modern clinical 3T MRI scanner, and from the Danish Research Center for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) at Copenhagen University Hospital.
