(2012-02-06)Dysphagia has negatively affected the quality of life or even caused death for many head and neck cancer patients. Consequently, it is critical that scientists investigate the function of normal and abnormal swallowing in ...
(2012-06-27)In recent years, combined MRI and nuclear imaging techniques such as PET and SPECT have received great attentions. MRI provides high-resolution anatomical and functional information along with an exquisite soft tissue ...
(2010-08-20)The goal of this research project was to develop a model that predicts the effect of fat solution on an MRI signal by a DW-GE pulse sequence. The region of interest is a heterogeneous structure inside a 3mmx3mmx9mm voxel, ...
Distortion-optimal parallel MRI with sparse sampling: from adaptive spatio-temporal acquisition to self-calibrating reconstruction (2010-08-31)In this dissertation, we address several inverse problems associated with multi-channel sampling and reconstruction that pertain to parallel magnetic resonance imaging (pMRI). The first part of this dissertation addresses ...
(2012-06-27)Dynamic speech imaging is a powerful technique for real-time visualization of speech dynamics. As a promising modality for dynamic speech imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can provide good soft-tissue contrast in ...
(2014-05-30)During infancy and childhood, almost every person will impacted by infection. Neonates, due to their immature immune system, are especially vulnerable to respiratory infection and are more prone to hospitalization. ...
(2012-05-22)Iron deficiency is the most commonly reported nutritional deficiency in the world and has been linked to cognitive impairments in children. Our aim was to assess the impact of iron deficiency on cognition using neonatal ...
(2012-06-27)Performance in most complex cognitive and psychomotor tasks improves with training, yet the extent of improvement varies among individuals. Is it possible to forecast the benefit that a person might reap from training? ...
