Impacting human life now

CRC is supporting the development and human imaging studies of a powerful new MRI technology being done by Pitt's Radiofrequency Research Facility and the 7 Tesla Bioengineering Research program led by bioengineering professor Tamer Ibrahim. The 7 Tesla scanner is one of the most powerful MRI devices in the world, able to reveal details not visible in typical MRI machines. particularly in brain markers implicated in diseases associated with aging, such as Alzheimer’s and late life depression, The lab l develops adiofrequency antennas to create even electromagnetic waves to avoid potentially dangerous heating of brain tissue, for which the team uses CRC to simulate hundreds of thousands of possible antenna configurations.
