About the Department/Section/Group

In our research group, located in the Dept. of Neuroradiology at the Karolinska University Hospital, we develop new pulse sequences and image reconstruction methods for clinical neuro MRI, both for adult and pediatric patients. This is done in close collaboration with the MR staff and neuroradiologists, and most of our developed techniques end up in clinical use. Our group has also developed a simplified pulse programming framework that has been shared to the MR research community and that has allowed for a short translation of ideas to prototypes and clinical production.
