The Vessel Wall

One research program in our lab is dedicated to understanding the vessel wall in health and disease through novel cardiac MRI sequences.

We collaborate with Sarah Blumenschein, M.D. to investigate how familial hypercholesterolemia affects the vessel wall. With Laura Klesse, M.D., Ph.D., we study the changes that occur with neurofibromatosis type 1.

In collaboration with Drs. René Botnar and Markus Henningsson at King’s College London, our team used novel cardiovascular MRI techniques to investigate aortic vessel wall imaging. This work was presented as an e-poster at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) meeting in April, 2017.
