A Review of Non−1H RF Receive Arrays in Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy
It is now common practice to use radiofrequency (RF) array coils to increase the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in 1H magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy experiments. Use of array coils for non- 1H experiments, however, has been historically more limited despite the fact that these... Read more

Magnetic Microdevices for MRI Measurement of SARS-CoV-2 Concentration
Goal: To develop a micron-scale device that can operate as an MRI-based reporter for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus. Methods: Iron rod microdevices were constructed via template-guided synthesis and suspended in phosphate buffered saline (PBS). Heat-inactivated SARS-CoV-2 viruses were added... Read more

3D Motion Estimation of Left Ventricular Dynamics Using MRI and Track-to-Track Fusion
This study investigates the estimation of three dimensional (3D) left ventricular (LV) motion using the fusion of different two dimensional (2D) cine magnetic resonance (CMR) sequences acquired during routine imaging sessions. Although standard clinical cine CMR data is inherently 2D,... Read more

Reference-Based Integral MR-EPT: Simulation and Experiment Studies at 9.4T MRI
Current integral-equation (IE) based MR electrical properties tomography (EPT) methods utilize simulated incident radio-frequency (RF) fields, which are inaccurate and lead to reconstruction errors. To improve the accuracy and practicability of IE-based MR-EPT methods, a new approach is presented that... Read more
