4D Flow MRI Advancing the Treatment of BAV

Michael Markl, PhD, Associate Professor in Radiology/McCormick School of Engineering, and was featured in the Winter 2014 online edition of “Northwestern Medicine”. Markle, who’s research includes functional cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), was profiled in the article “Advancing the Treatment of Bicuspid Aortic Valve Disease” for his contributions in the development of 4-D flow MRI technology and its’ application in […]

Microspheres for MRI-Guided Delivery of Sorafenib

Microspheres for MRI-Guided Delivery of Sorafenib

Sorafenib can be an effective therapy for patients with primary liver cancer. However, tolerance is often poor due to systemic side effects. Local transcatheter delivery to liver tumors may reduce systemic toxicities while increasing the dose delivered to targeted tumors. Jean Chen, a PhD candidate in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, developed sorafenib-eluting PLG […]
