Open

  • Improvements in Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MR Angiography and Perfusion Rochester, Minn.

    The overall purpose is to study how a variety of technological approaches in Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used to provide improved performance contrast-enhanced MR imaging as used for angiography and perfusion.  These include but are not limited to improvements in: (i) receiver coils; (ii) pulse sequences for data acquisition; (iii) methods for image reconstruction; (iv) algorithms for deriving MRI-based quantitative parameters and biomarkers.

  • Multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) for Preoperative Staging and Treatment Planning for Newly-Diagnosed Prostate Cancer Jacksonville, Fla.

    The purpose of this study is to assess how well multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) works in evaluating cancer stage and helping treatment planning in patients with prostate cancer. Multiparametric MRI may be useful for evaluating the type of cancer in finding aggressive disease.

Closed for Enrollment

  • Assessment of Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging in the Prostate and Pelvis Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to assess advanced imaging methods for the prostate and pelvis. Specifically, we are studying methods that allow us to acquire higher resolution images of the prostate and pelvis more quickly than our current imaging methods. These types of fast high resolution MRI acquisitions have been shown in the literature to improve cancer detection.
