Pulmonary MR imaging at Sheffield

Our work focuses on the physics and engineering methods for lung imaging with proton and hyperpolarised gas MRI, and their clinical application.

MRI biomarkers - completing the phenotyping stack

Dr Steven Sourbron from the University of Leeds is visiting on Thursday 22nd November and will give a seminar on his research on dynamic contrast enhanced MRI and tracer kinetic theory of tissue permeability and uptake.
