Talk Title: "Novel Non-Cartesian Parallel Imaging Techniques for Rapid MRI”
Abstract: Magnetic Resonance Imaging is an increasingly powerful tool for medical imaging, but it still suffers from long data acquisition times, especially for rapid dynamic imaging. My group seeks to shorten MRI scan times by combining two powerful acceleration techniques, namely parallel imaging and non-Cartesian imaging. The resulting method, through-time non-Cartesian GRAPPA, can be used to achieve acceleration factors of greater than R=10 for dynamic imaging. This technique is able to accelerate MR acquisitions for many applications; cardiac and abdominal images will be shown to demonstrate the power of through-time non-Cartesian GRAPPA.
Biography: Nicole Seiberlich is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University. The primary focus of her research is fast MRI, with special emphasis on cardiac imaging using parallel imaging combined with non-Cartesian trajectories. Dr. Seiberlich graduated from Yale University with a BS in Chemistry in 2001, and after working as a financial services consultant in New York and Germany for several years, received her PhD from the Department of Experimental Physics of the University of Wuerzburg in 2008.
