The NeuroEngineering Laboratory Seminar Series continues with a PhD Completion Seminar by Amanda Ng.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging phase data contains information about the magnetic properties and chemical composition of tissue and demonstrates novel contrast compared to the magnitude data more commonly used in MRI studies. Current methods for processing phase data and their limitations will be discussed, and new methods for artifact removal and analysis of phase data will be presented. Particular focus will be placed on Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping, in which localised magnetic susceptibilities are estimated from the phase data. This technique holds great promise in clinical studies of neurodegenerative diseases in which iron accumulates in the brain.
Amanda is completing her PhD at the University of Melbourne in collaboration with the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. She has a bachelor degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Monash University.
