The Body Magnetic Resonance (BMR) Group develops new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods and applies them to improve clinical care. Our current focus applications are breast MRI, abdominal MRI, MRI of osteoarthritis and MRI near metallic implants, with links between basic science, clinical imaging and industry.
Our group, directed by Brian Hargreaves, is part of the Radiological Sciences Lab, Department of Radiology, School of Medicine, at Stanford University. Students in our group are primarily from the departments of Electrical Engineering and Bioengineering.
