Professor Mara Cercignani, Chair of Imaging Physics at Brighton and Sussex Medical School presents a short film profiling her research in quantitative MRI.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become the most common method of imaging our bodies. While conventional MRI just takes pictures of our organs, quantitative MRI explores the properties of the tissues within them. Professor Mara Cercignani, Chair of Imaging Physics, specialises in finding ways to optimise quantitative MRI both for diagnosis and clinical research. As a result, faster and more accurate diagnosis can be given without the need to cut into the body.
Quantitative MRI has the potential to be regularly used in routine examinations as well as to the effective monitoring of new treatments. Clinical researchers will benefit from faster and more accurate results which will reduce time and costs of clinical trials. Professor Cercignani’s projects currently focus around dementia, attention deficit hyperactive disorders (ADHD) and motor neuron disease.
