3D SHINKEI of abdomen for MR neurography of celiac plexus

This study compared respiratory- and cardiac-triggered three-dimensional (3D) SHINKEI to other modes, and respiratory- and cardiac-triggered 3D SHINKEI showed superior nerve-to-muscle signal ratios in abdomen. Article: Respiratory- and cardiac-triggered...

Automated alignment correction algorithm for geological CT imaging

The authors developed an alignment correction algorithm for CT that would improve geological sampling of sediment cores taken from a cold-water coral mount. Article: Experimental application of an automated alignment correction algorithm for geological CT imaging:...

MRI-guided HIFU-triggered supertargeted drug release

This study provides the proof-of-concept of using a magnetic resonance imaging-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound pulse for disintegrating and triggering release of a newly developed thermoresponsive wax-coated capsule, thus enabling temporally and spatially...

Validation of accelerated 4D flow MRI sequences

This study compared four-dimensional (4D) flow to standard two-dimensional (2D) flow sequences in order to determine whether 4D flow can reduce scan time with equivalent image quality and accuracy, but found no significant difference compared to the 2D flow. Article:...
