Title: Resource for Quantitative Functional MRI
The major goal is to provide state-of-the-art MRI and MRS data acquisition and image processing technology and unique MR expertise to facilitate the biomedical research of NIH-funded neuroscientists at several institutions in Maryland and throughout the USA.

Title: Functional Magnetic Resonance Studies of the Brain
The major goal is to design new NMR Methods for a multi-modality stroke exam. These methods will be developed on the
animal scanner and then transferred to the human scanner. The aims for the coming five years are: design of MRI methods to
measure oxygen extraction ratios from T2 measurements; Development of T1r imaging for assessment of water-protein
interactions; design of proton NMR measurements of pH.

Title: Quantification of the BOLD effect in Functional MRI
The major goal is to measure the quantitative relaxation constants of blood as a function of blood oxygenation in hypoxia
experiments and during visual stimulation, in an isolated blood preparation, in vivo in animals and in humans.

Title: Sodium Imaging in Ischemic Heart Disease
To develop and optimize sodium (23Na) MRI for the normal humman heart and to use it to assess myocardial viability in
patients with myocardial infraction and with ischemic heart disease.

Title: Development of MRI Methodology for the Noninvasive study of brain Fibre Structure.
The goal is to develop diffusion technology for the 3D display of brain fibers.
