My lab develops magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques with an emphasis on quantitative imaging to improve the diagnosis of early disease and the effect of treatment. Main areas of disease focus are cancer, cardiovascular, and metabolic disorders. A focus of our work is clinical translation, thus the methods that we developed provide high quality and accurate quantitative imaging within the time constraints of a clinical MRI scan. Support for our work is provided by the National Institutes of Health, the Arizona Biomedical research Centre, the American Heart Association, and industry and our technology is distributed worldwide.

We develop cutting-edge imaging technology, integrating light, ultrasound and electricity, to diagnose and treat diseases ranging from epilepsy to breast cancer. Novel sources for ultrasound contrast include optical and microwave absorption, mechanical strain, and electrical current. We visualize electrical brain “stormsˮ during uncontrollable seizures and envision “smartˮ photoacoustic agents that seek-and-destroy deadly tumors.
