Our neurovascular imaging group has been developing new methods to image the arteries that feed the brain since 1992.  This began with work to use MRI to detect intracranial aneurysms and supsequent work to improve the visualization of disease in the arterial wall.  A huge factor in image quality improvement has been obtained by designing and developing neck-shape-specific RF coils in our coil lab.

Most recently, Dr. J. Scott McNally has begun research projects that use imaging and other basic methods to study the biology of vascular diease.
