Primary Research Areas

Development and application of magnetic resonance imaging techniques to diagnose and monitor brain and spinal cord injury.

  • Apply advanced MRI techniques, including diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), to detect and monitor injury to the central nervous system noninvasively
  • Define the specific biological features that give rise to the MRI findings using animal models of neurological injury
  • Determine the prognostic capabilities of MRI in acute brain and spinal cord trauma
