Balchandani Lab

Balchandani Lab (MRI technical development, High Field MRI)

Dr. Balchandani’s research is focused on the design of innovative radio frequency (RF) pulses and pulse sequences that harness the power of high-field magnets and exploit new contrast mechanisms in order to enable novel applications of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).  Her lab explores engineering solutions for MR imaging and spectroscopy at high magnetic fields such as 7 Tesla (7T). Beyond higher resolution images that elucidate finer anatomical features, high-field MR offers greater spectral resolution for spectroscopic imaging, new and enhanced contrast mechanisms and improved detection of nuclei other than protons that are essential to cell processes.  A main goal of Dr. Balchandani’s lab is to develop techniques that exploit the benefits offered by 7T magnets for neuroimaging applications by overcoming the limitations associated with their operation.  Dr. Balchandani’s additional research interests include creative pulse and pulse sequence designs for nontraditional MR applications such as multinuclear imaging and stem cell tracking.
