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.

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 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 and Danish Research Center for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) at Copenhagen University Hospital, where we have access to MR scanners.
