At the QBI lab we work hand in hand with clinicians,
residents, and researchers to find ways to improve clinical
imaging of breast cancer. Our research focuses primarily on
developing new techniques for imaging breast cancer with MRI,
including implementing and testing new scanner sequences, and
facilitating the transition of research scans from academic
research to clinical use.
Our location in the SCCA
breast imaging center gives us unique insight into the
working clinic, and allows us to collaborate with physiciains
and focus on solutions that have the highest impact for
patient care. Two of our main areas of focus are dynamic
contrast enhanced (DCE) MR and diffusion weighted imaging
(DWI). Clinical research is performed on a state of the art
Philips Achieva 3T MRI scanner with 16 channel breast coil.
