Research Summary

My research is focused on three major areas: (1) development of dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI methods for assessment of tumor treatment response, focusing particularly on the intercompartmental water exchange and cell membrane permeability; (2) extracellular space mapping using diffusion time dependency of MRI experiments in cancer and normal tissues including the brain, muscle, and breast; and (3) role of saturated fat in breast cancer development and progression using MR spectroscopic imaging methods.  

Research Interests

Dynamic contrast enhanced MRI; diffusion MRI; breast cancer; head and neck cancer; fat quantification.
