Development and implementation of new MR imaging sequences for cell detection on clinical scanners. The methods are based on fast imaging techniques and are used for both positive and negative contrast.
PhD. Francesco received a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Florence (Italy) in 2005. Afterwards, he did his PhD in Biophyiscs in the division of Radiological Physics of the University of Basel (Switzerland) with main focus on fast steady-state sequences for MRI. He is currently employed by the University of Basel as a postdoctoral fellow and his main research interests are cell tracking and flow imaging.
