Meher Juttukonda

Dr. Juttkonda's research focuses on the development of imaging methods for measuring cerebral hemo-metabolic function and the translation of these methods for characterizing microvascular health in cerebrovascular diseases. The immediate goal is to employ a multidisciplinary approach to elucidate...

Suk-tak (Phoebe) Chan

Dr. Chan joined the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at MGH in 2010 as an instructor.  Her current research focuses on imaging of cerebrovascular responses using ultrasound and MRI. She uses natural breathing/gaseous challenge to measure cerebrovascular responses in healthy sub...

Ona Wu

The research goals of Dr. Wu's group are to improve the diagnosis, prognosis and management of patients with brain injury by quantifying and monitoring injury or recovery on an individual patient basis. The group focuses particularly on stroke, cardiac arrest and traumatic brain injury. Predictin...

Kenneth Kwong

Kenneth Kwong, PhD, has been conducting magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) research for more than 30 years with expertise in diffusion (R.1), functional imaging (R.2) and perfusion imaging (R.3). He was one of the earliest researchers to explore MR diffusion imaging of healthy subjects and patients...
