Tailoring Stress Cardiac MRI for Women with Ischemic Heart Disease

The purpose of this study is to test in women with chest pain an imaging method that can detect a lack of blood supply to the heart muscle tissue without requiring radiation. The tool uses magnetic resonance imaging without gadolinium contrast agents to detect microvascular coronary disease and exclude obstructive coronary disease in women.

‌Ferumoxytol-Enhanced Cardiac MRI for Detection of Ischemic Heart Disease

The purpose of this research study is to develop a magnetic resonance imaging technique using intravenous iron to image areas of the heart muscle that have reduced blood supply. This technique is specifically designed to help patients with ischemic heart disease and impaired kidney function.

‌Expanding on a New Paradigm for MRI in Pediatric Congenital Heart Disease

The purpose of this research study is to build upon our existing experience to enable free-breathing 4D cardiac MRI in pediatric patients with complex congenital heart disease. We will develop methods to enable image-guided therapy for patients with with single ventricle physiology.

Development of Practical Quantitative Non-contrast MRI for Cerebrovascular Disease

This is a multicenter, collaborative project with the purpose of developing a quantitative non-contrast MRI technique for detection of cerebrovascular disease in veteran patients.
