Development of novel MRI methods
My general research goal is to develop new clinical MRI methods. This entails the design of new MRI methods for clinical use, their technical and clinical validation and ultimately advising on their clinical utilization. MRI research in the Academic Medical Center (AMC Amsterdam) currently focuses on neurovascular (vessel wall imaging, arterial spin labeling) and muscular (DTI) imaging. This research is conducted in close collaboration with the departments of Vascular Medicine, Biomedical Engineering and Physics, Neurology, Psychiatry and the Brain Imaging Centre (BIC) in the AMC. On a national and international level research collaborations exist with EMC Rotterdam, UMC Utrecht, LUMC, TU Eindhoven, Mount Sinai Hospital New York, Centre de Recherche Biomédicale Bichat, Beaujon/Paris, Trinity College Dublin and Philips Healthcare.
