Titel: Diffusion modeling for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Tid och plats: Fredagen 17 april, Hopningspunkten, 10.15 - 11.15
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), is a technique for e.g. imaging parts of the human body, often for medical purposes. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields which couple to the dipole moments of water, and by applying oscillating fields, the emitted response reveals the type of tissue under investigation. In the mid-1980s, techniques which also addressed diffusion appeared and they are known as dMRI, diffusion MRI.
To interpret correctly the signals collected from the scanners, a knowledge of the diffusion process within the tissue is important. I will present a way to model such diffusion, which has been developed together with collaborators at IMT, Institutionen för medicinsk teknik.
