Imaging of atoms and anatomy with Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Dr Martin Graves, Dr Joshua Kaggie and Dr Ferdia Gallagher, Addenbrooke’s Hospital, discuss the physics behind Magnetic Resonance Imaging. They show how these principles are used to image human anatomy and detect disease and how specific atoms can be used to improve disease characterisation.
Dr Ferdia Gallagher is an academic radiologist and CRUK-funded Senior Research Fellow who researches new methods to probe cancer metabolism.
Dr Martin Graves is the Head of MR Physics at Addenbrooke's Hospital, has developed many new cardiac MRI techniques, and has authored the textbook, MRI: from Picture to Proton.
Dr Joshua Kaggie is a physicist who is funded by the Biomedical Research Council and an EU Horizon 2020 grant for improving stem cell tracking methods for osteoarthritic repair.
