CAI RHD Publication Competition Winner

16 Sep 2016

Congratulations to CAI RHD student Surabhi Sood whose publication was selected as winner of Round 3 of the CAI RHD publication competition.

S. Sood, J. Urriola, D. Reutens, K. O’Brien, S. Bollmann, M. Barth and V. Vegh "Echo Time-Dependent Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping Contains Information on Tissue Properties" Magnetic Resonance in Medicine 2016 May 25. doi: 10.1002/mrm.26281.

Abstract: Quantitative susceptibility mapping is an important magnetic resonance imaging tool which can help define brain structure and composition. Our work aims to explore information contained in the temporal trend by analysing the mapped magnetic susceptibility as a function of echo time from gradient recalled data acquired at 7T. Parameterisation of image voxel susceptibility compartments has the potential to delineate structural and chemical changes in tissue and formulate biologically meaningful measures.

Round 4 of the publication competition is now open - deadline 11th November
