Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy in animal models of human diseases
January 17, 2006
Location: Vancouver Hospital, Div. Nuclear Medicine - Library G607
Presenter: Piotr Kozlowski, Assist. Professor, Department of Radiology/Surgery,
The talk will provide a brief introduction into Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy (MRI/MRS) techniques. This will be followed by various examples of the applications of MRI/MRS in small animals. The examples will include: tumour perfusion measurements in mice, high resolution imaging of rat spinal cord, cardiac imaging in mice, imaging of iron labelled cells, and multi-nuclear spectroscopy.
