My research focus on the development and validation of novel MRI techniques to facilitate clinicians' need for diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Through years of work on the methodology improvement for arterial spin labeling techniques, I have made substantial contribution for quantitative MR measurements of cerebral blood flow, volume, oxygenation and oxygen metabolism. In particular, my recent development on advanced velocity-selective pulse trains holds great promise for MR angiography and perfusion mapping without applying contrast agents.
