Robust Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Short T2 Tissues – Part 2

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an imagig modality which can visualize the internal structure of the human body and is free of radiation. In this project, we would like to write a multi-functional and robust MRI software package using ultrashort echo time (UTE) technique to realize the imaging of the tissues, such as tendons, ligaments and cotrical bone, which are difficult to view through conventional MRI techniques. This project will contribute a reliable imaging tool to our partner, Siemens Healthcare Canada, to further transform this tool into a medical solution which is able to aid the diagnosis of the associated diseases such as osteoarthritis (OA).
