Target: To provide Medical Imaging Post-processing Services and to investigate in newquantitative biomarkers based on medical imaging with application in neuroscience.
Description: This lab provides quantification methods for clinical trials and medical research based on medical imaging, and develops new acquisition techniques in neuroimaging with Magnetic Resonance equipments for humans. The laboratory is providing imaging services to most of the general hospitals in the Comunidad de Madrid and carrying out more than 20 research projects on brain diseases. Actually, the most important project is the Alzheimer’s Project of the Queen Sofia’s Foundation that carries out the image acquisition and quantification of more than 2000 patients a year.
Techniques: High Resolution acquisition, DTI postprocessing, MR Spectroscopy, fMRI Analysis, Olfactory fMRI, Brain Iron Depositions detection, Structural and Functional Connectivy appraisal, Simultaneous EEG-fMRI Acquisition.
Infrastructure: 3T MR Facility (FUNDACIÓN REINA SOFÍA), Olfactometer Equipment, MAC Servers, iMAC, Brain Voyager, 3D Slicer, Alztools, etc.
