I am interested in MRI based methods for detecting calcium deposits which can be early indicators of breast cancer.


I am currently working on four MRI methods for detecting calcium in tissue: pattern recognition, susceptibility gradient imaging, susceptibility mapping, and ultra-short echo time. Developing and optimizing these methods in order to find the conditions appropriate for practical implementation form the basis of my PhD research."
