The MRI division at BIDMC integrates clinical expertise with innovative scientific research. The group is actively engaged in enhancing the diagnostic value of MR imaging through the pursuit of fast imaging approaches, 3D volumetric imaging techniques and physiologic imaging. MR angiography, MR diffusion / perfusion and MR spectroscopy are areas of special expertise and dedicated whole body research systems at 3.0T, as well as a smaller bore 9.4T system, provide ample opportunities for current and new research programs. A 1.5T GE HD23 scanner that is used primarily for clinical imaging may also be available for research. 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!
