Ultra-High-Field Relaxation and Apparent Diffusion Coefficient Measurements of Mouse Glioma Model

This project seeks to characterize longitudinal relaxation times (T1) and apparent diffusion coefficients (ADC) at ultra-high magentic field strength of both healthy and cancer bearing mouse brains with correlation to histology, specifically white and grey matter. By better understanding T1 and ADC at ultra-high field strengths we will be better able to quantitatively measure dynamic contrast-enhanced changes as well as better understand the decreased white-grey matter contrast at these field strengths.
