Advanced Neuroimaging for Pediatric Studies

The PI of this project was:

This project was funded by: Radiology RD

The term of this project was: March 2017 to August 2018

The number of subjects scanned during this project was: 40

The purpose of this study is to evaluate, compare, and optimize new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methodologies in children. Magnetic resonance imaging is a rapidly evolving technology. While protocols exist to quickly test new techniques in adult participants, success of a new technique in an adult does not always translate to success in children and no such protocols exist for rapid testing of emerging techniques in children. This study will consist of limited testing of emerging MRI techniques that have demonstrated promise in adult participants but whose performance is unknown or not yet tested in pediatric populations.
