My research interest focused on MRI pulse sequence design, reconstruction methods, post processing algorithms, especially in cardiovascular imaging. We have developed large coverage multi-contrast black blood imaging techniques for vessel wall imaging and investigated 4D flow acceleration algorithms even in ‘real time’ fashion. We have applied all these techniques into series of applications, such as atherosclerosis plaque, intracranial aneurysm, pulmonary hypertension, cerebral venous disease, and cardiac diseases.
