Abstract: This talk will focus on the development of novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods for imaging the blood and lymphatic circulation, and examples of how these methods are being implemented in clinical radiology units to evaluate surgical and pharmacological therapies will be shown. Specific examples will focus on (i) using quantitative non-invasive metabolic imaging methods to triage patients with cerebrovascular disease (arterial steno-occlusion and sickle cell anemia) for surgical or pharmacological interventions, and (ii) how a subgroup of these methods, optimized originally for visualizing blood flow, are being adapted to visualize the structure and function of the lymphatic system in patients with peripheral lymphatic disorders.
