The Park Lab

Welcome to the Park Lab

Our lab focuses on the development of novel noninvasive imaging methods for in vivo metabolism and function, identification of characteristics in metabolic diseases, and clinical translations of the metabolic imaging methods.

Metabolic imaging using MR

Metabolic imaging using MR

MRI/MRS provide useful information of in vivo metabolism and tissue heterogeneity ranging from anatomical change to cellular metabolism.

Imaging cerebral metablism after mild TBI

Imaging cerebral metablism after mild TBI

Acute responses of cerebral metabolism to mild traumatic brain injury.

Dual-phase imaging of cardiac metabolism

Dual-phase imaging of cardiac metabolism

Imaging cardiac metabolism at end-diastole and end-systole.
