Academic Groups

There are two primary Academic groups in the MRRC, both of which are a part of the Division of Bioimaging Sciences in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology at the Yale School of Medicine. Each group is centered around a specific imaging modality or research theme, although the research topics within any given group are often broad. There are also substantial interactions between faculty within and across each of the groups listed.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Research in this group is focused on technical advances in imaging, such as fast imaging sequences applied to the body or the brain, methodology development in molecular imaging, cardiac imaging and functional brain imaging, and basic science research in each of these areas. Read more...

Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Ever since the discovery of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), the field of MR has diverged into MRI and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS). Whereas MRI typically observes water signal, MRS detects all chemicals above a minimum concentration threshold. The members of the Yale MRS group have been pioneers in many of the applications of MRS to the study of metabolism in vivo. Read more...
