Dr. Garwood and the researchers in his lab focus on developing cutting-edge MRI and MR spectroscopy techniques and exploiting them in studies of tissue function, metabolism, and microstructure. The Garwood group has made a significant advancement in the way MRI is performed - a technique called SWIFT. This technique improves the capability to track and quantify targeted contrast agents and molecular therapies, as well as magnetically-labeled cells. Researchers are also exploring the physics of nuclear magnetic resonance relaxation, in an effort to improve the sensitivity and specificity of MRI for disease characterization, diagnosis, and treatment monitoring.
