Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Studies include development and preliminary clinical evaluation of advanced techniques for ultrasonic imaging and tissue characterization. A number of studies are ongoing involving advanced techniques of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy with application to the GU tract. Specific projects at the present time include: 1) Creation of ultrasound images which encode frequency information in an attempt to more fully describe tissue than conventional ultrasound images. 2) Determination of renal blood flow with cine phase contrast MRI in both native and transplant kidneys. 3) Magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy of prostatic carcinoma. 4) Magnetic resonance imaging of venous thrombosis.
