"4D Flow MRI and the Search for Imaging Biomarkers of Cardiovascular Disease"

Alex Barker, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor
Department of Radiology
Northwestern University

For the past 20 years 4D flow MRI has remained a 'research-only' exam - primarily due to long exam times and complex postprocessing requirements. Recent advances in hardware and software are poised to bring this once hours-long technique within the realm of a ten minute 'exam-and-answer'. In this talk, we will cover a number of high-level applications in which our group has gathered evidence to show that this technique has a promising future in the clinical workflow. Furthermore, we will take a deep dive looking at the use of 4D flow MRI to investigate confounding effects of complex hemodynamics on bicuspid aortic valve aortopathy.

The Bioengineering Seminar Series is co-hosted by the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, and the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University.
