Professor David J. Lurie
University of Aberdeen
Professor David Lurie has worked in MRI Physics research at the University of Aberdeen since 1983 and has held a Chair in Biomedical Physics there since 2002. He has been a Visiting Scientist at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and was a Visiting International Scholar at Ohio State University. His research is concerned with the development of MRI technology and its bio-medical applications. Prof. Lurie is the Coordinator of a 9-partner, €6.6M EU Horizon-2020 research project, entitled “Improving Diagnosis by Fast Field-Cycling MRI”. He is author of 74 peer-reviewed publications, 8 book chapters, 5 patents and over 270 conference abstracts; he has given more than 90 invited, keynote and plenary lectures at conferences and workshops. In 2017 he was awarded the Academic Gold Medal of IPEM. He is Vice-Chair of the Communications and Publications Committee of EFOMP and Vice-Chair of the Course Accreditation Committee of IPEM.
Fast Field-Cycling MRI: A New Diagnostic Imaging Modality
Fast Field-Cycling MRI (FFC-MRI) represents a step-change in MRI technology. By switching the B0 field strength during a scan, FFC-MRI accesses radically new types of endogenous contrast – invisible to standard MRI – based on the way in which the T1 of tissues changes with field strength. A prototype human-scale scanner has been built and studies on patients are underway. This seminar will describe the technology, methods, applications and results of FFC-MRI.
