Sep. 1, 2020—Vanderbilt engineers have received a $1.4 million NIH grant to work toward a compact, silent, less expensive and potentially portable MRI device.
Aug. 11, 2020—Mark Does, professor of biomedical engineering has been selected as a Fellow of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine. His research program focuses on developing and applying MRI methods to quantitatively characterize various properties and/or compositions of tissue. It includes developing models of nuclear magnetic resonance relaxation and water diffusion in tissue, development...
