The Body Magnetic Resonance (BMR) Group develops and applies MRI to improve clinical care. We focus on breast MRI, abdominal MRI, MRI of osteoarthritis and MRI near metallic implants, with links between basic science, clinical imaging and industry. BMR is part of the Radiological Sciences Lab, Department of Radiology, School of Medicine, at Stanford University. Most of our students are in Electrical Engineering, Bioengineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
MRI Monitoring of Focused Ultrasound Sonications Near Metallic Hardware
We previously developed a method for imaging temperature changes in tissue near metal hardware; here we evaluate its use to monitor MR-guided focused ultrasound treatments.
Artifact-Reduced Imaging of Biopsy Needles with 2D Multispectral Imaging
We have validated the use of an MR imaging method that reduces the image artifacts due to metal objects for tracking biopsy needles in MR-guided procedures.
MRI of Peripheral Nerves
Evaluation of the nerve fascicular structure can be useful in diagnosing subtle nerve damage.
Simultaneous Bilateral Knee MR Imaging
Osteoarthritis (OA) remains a tremendous burden to society, affecting the majority of the population by age 65.
