Seminar by Prof. Anup Singh on “Molecular Imaging using CEST MRI: Acquisition, Analysis and Applications”
March 7 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Title: Molecular Imaging using CEST MRI: Acquisition, Analysis and Applications
MRI is routinely being used to obtain different types of images that are sensitive to structural, functional, and physiological information. The use of MRI in disease diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment monitoring is rapidly growing. Chemical-exchange-saturation-transfer (CEST) is an advanced MRI techniques which provides high resolution molecular information. CEST MRI of multiple in vivo molecules has been demonstrated and research studies are being carried out to evaluate their clinical potential. In this talk, an overview of the molecular imaging using CEST MRI shall be presented, including data acquisition approaches, quantitative analysis and some applications.
About the Speaker:
Dr. Anup Singh is currently an Associate Professor at the Centre for Biomedical Engineering (CBME), IIT-Delhi and is associated as a faculty with the Department of Biomedical Engineering, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, AIIMS, New Delhi. Dr. Singh received a PhD degree from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT-Kanpur) in 2008. Dr. Singh has worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher (Aug 2008 – March 2013) in the Center for Magnetic Resonance and Optical Imaging (CMROI), Department of Radiology at University of Pennsylvania(UPENN) and then as a Research Associate (April 2013 – March 2014) in the same Center. His group is pursuing multiple research projects on the development of the methodology of quantitative multi-parametric MRI and evaluating its potential applications to cancer (brain tumor, breast cancer and prostate cancer) diagnosis and treatment monitoring.
