Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology Seminar: Jeff Gaudet (Magnetic Insight)

September 17, 2018
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Radiology/NIL Conference Room (Medical Campus, 4525 Scott Ave, East Bldg 2311)

“Changing the Field: An Introduction to Magnetic Particle Imaging”

This Seminar is hosted by the Biomedical Magnetic Resonance Laboratory at WashU’s Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology.

Please join us next week on Monday, 9/17/18, for this special seminar on the topic of Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI), a high-resolution molecular imaging approach that longitudinally detects nanoparticles regardless of depth. MPI harnesses the flexibility of iron oxide nanoparticles to label cells, as targeted probes, or freely flowing through the vasculature.

This seminar will cover the basics of MPI and applications directed toward:

  • cell tracking models
  • functional tumor imaging
  • localized hyperthermic & theranostic imaging
  • functional vascular imaging

Background:  Dr. Jeff Gaudet’s research has focused on developing and implementing emerging imaging technologies for tracking cellular therapeutics. Dr. Gaudet started his career developing the first pre-clinical and clinical 19F-MRI cell tracking site in Canada at Robarts Research Institute.  He received a PhD in Medical Biophysics and Molecular Imaging from Western University, and a BSc in Biophysics from the University of Guelph.
