By using $2.1 million in funding from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, a UArizona team of researchers led by Biomedical Engineering associate professor and BIO5 member Dr. Nan-kuei Chen, is looking to develop faster MR technologies to accommodate challenging patient populations. The research aims to provide higher-resolution images with richer information, giving health care practitioners more information about the stage of a disease and the ability to detect brain signal abnormality for those afflicted with diseases like Parkinson's.
