“Volumetric Navigators (vNavs): a method for quantifying and correcting the effect of subject motion on structural MRI”


Background: Dr. Dylan Tisdall, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Radiology at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. His research focuses on the development of motion-robust MRI, with an emphasis on motion correction methods for structural imaging and quantifying the impact of motion on brain morphometry. While at the A. A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital, he was the co-inventor of the volumetric navigators (vNavs) prospective motion correction system, which has become a standard tool in large multi-center studies, including Adolescent Brain Cognitive Develop (ABCD), and Human Connectome Project–Aging and –Development.
