Congratulations to Jenna Merenstein, Ph.D. for receiving the Duke/UNC Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) Research Education Component (REC) Scholar award!
Accelerated Brain Atrophy, Microstructural Decline and Connectopathy in Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Congratulations to current and former BIAC faculty and affiliates for their recent publication. Authors include: Jacques A. Stout , Ali Mahzarnia, Rui Dai, Robert J. Anderson, Scott Cousins, Jie Zhuang, Eleonora M. Lad, Diane B. Whitaker, David J. Madden, Guy G. Potter, Heather E. Whitson, and Alexandra Badea.
BIAC researcher Dr. Raj Morey and former postdoc Ashley Huggins, Ph.D., were recently highlighted in Duke Today for their findings on traumatic stress associated with a smaller brain region.
Depth- and curvature-based quantitative susceptibility mapping analyses of cortical iron in Alzheimer’s disease.
BIAC researchers led by Jenna Merenstein and David Madden conducted column-based QSM analyses of cortical iron in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), and healthy controls. Iron increased for AD patients in topographically heterogenous manner across the cortical mantle, which may help explain the qualitative difference in the cognitive decline in AD as compared to healthy aging.
BIAC researchers David Madden and Jenna Merenstein have published a review of studies that use quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) to estimate age-related differences in brain iron deposition and the relation to cognition.
Devon Overson presented his research projects related to using diffusion MRI methods and Alzheimer's disease to current Master’s degree students in the Duke University Medical Physics Graduate Program.
Congrats to Olivia Dickinson from the MR Engineering Lab for receiving the 1st prize in the scientific poster competition at the i2i Workshop!
BIAC researchers led by Devon Overson, Dean Darnell, and Trong-Kha Truong from the MR Engineering Lab have developed a flexible multi-purpose integrated parallel reception, excitation, and shimming (iPRES) coil array for simultaneous imaging and localized B0 shimming.
BIAC researchers led by Jenna Merenstein and David Madden demonstrated significant differences in estimates of structural brain network connectivity, in relation to adult age and cognitive performance, for a high-resolution multi-shot diffusion-weighted imaging protocol, as compared to a standard resolution protocol.
Numerical simulations of an integrated radio-frequency/wireless coil design for simultaneous acquisition and wireless transfer of magnetic resonance imaging data
BIAC researchers led by Devon Overson, Julia Bresticker, and Dean Darnell from the MR Engineering Lab have optimized the design of an integrated radio-frequency/wireless (iRFW) coil for simultaneous acquisition and wireless transfer of MRI data.
