    Research Summary

    Dr. Huisman's research is focused on the use of advanced neuro-imaging in the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the normal developing and diseased or injured pediatric brain. Furthermore Dr. Huisman works on the non-invasive imaging of the unborn child (fetal MRI) and is advancing various imaging techniques that do not use ionizing radiation. Finally, Dr. Huisman is focused on a child and family friendly and centered pediatric radiology in which multiple approaches and tools are used and combined to image very young children with minimal or no sedation.
