BIDMC MRI Research Staff at a team event

The MRI division at BIDMC integrates clinical expertise with innovative scientific research. The group is actively engaged in enhancing the research and diagnostic value of MR imaging through the pursuit of fast imaging approaches, 3D volumetric imaging techniques and physiologic imaging. MR Perfusion, Magnetization Transfer imaging, MR diffusion, and Hyperpolarized MR imaging and spectroscopy, are areas of special expertise. A dedicated whole body research system at 3.0T, as well as a smaller bore 9.4T system and HyperSense for hyperpolarized MRI, provide ample opportunities for current and new research programs. The strong collaborations with world-renowned clinicians, clinical scientists and basic scientists throughout the institution represent a unique and compelling feature of our program. Welcome!
