Magnetic Resonance Systems Laboratory





Welcome to the Magnetic Resonance Systems Lab website!

The primary objective of the MRSL is to develop new methods and technology to improve magnetic resonance imaging and to train students in MRI, RF, applied electromagnetics, and image and signal processing.  We actively encourage collaborations that can benefit from projects in the lab.

Some projects include:

  • RF Array coils.

  • Dual-tuned RF coils for multinuclear spectroscopy..

  • Current source and other modular  RF Amplifiers for Transmit Sense and Transmit/Receive Arrays.

  • Image combination methods for parallel imaging.

  • Signal combination methods for reduced receiver count MRI.

  • High-temperature superconducting RF coil arrays for NQR and MRI.

  • Ultra-fast MR Imaging.

We are always interested in discussing interesting problems with colleagues and students.     Please stop by, call, or e-mail if you would like to discuss the use of MRI in your research.
