Dr. Julio Garcia Honored by ISMRM


The Department of Radiology is pleased to announce that theInternational Society For Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) has selected Julio Garcia, PhD, as a Junior Fellow.

Dr. Garcia, is a postdoctoral fellow in the Northwestern Cardiovascular Imaging Program, with a research focus that involves the development of advanced data analysis strategies for aortic, valvular, and congenital diseases using 4D flow MRI. Dr. Garcia is the co-author on the following research papers:

Dual-Velocity Encoding Phase-Contrast MRI: extending the dynamic range and lowering the velocity to noise ratio. S. Schnell, C. Wu, J. Garcia, M. Markl. Proc Intl Soc Mag Res Med 23 (2015): 4546.

Intracranial k-t Accelerated Dual-Venc 4D flow MRI. S. Schnell, C. Wu, J. Garcia, I. Murphy, M. Markl.Proc Intl Soc Mag Res Med 23 (2015):4543.

Assessment of Flow Vorticity in the Right Heart of Patients with Repaired Tetralogy of Fallot. J. Garcia, D. Hirtler, A.J. Barker, J. Geiger.Proc Intl Soc Mag Res Med 23 (2015): 4562.

4D Flow based Characterization of Aortic Morphometry and Flow Parameters: Impact of Age, Aortic Dilation and Valve Morphology. J. Garcia, A.J. Barker, I. Murphy, K. Jarvis, A.L. Powell, S. Schnell, J. Collins, J. Carr, S.C. Malaisrie, M. Markl. Proc Intl Soc Mag Res Med 23 (2015): 455.

Volumetric Quantification of Localized Helicity in Patients with Bicuspid Valve and Aortic Dilation. J. Garcia, M. Markl, J. Collins, J. Carr, A.J. Barker.Proc Intl Soc Mag Res Med 23 (2015): 2716.

Age-Related Changes of Aortic Hemodynamics Derived from 4D flow MRI in 60 Healthy Volunteers. P. van Ooij, J. Garcia, S. Schnell, J. Collins, J. Carr, M. Markl, A.J. Barker. Proc Intl Soc Mag Res Med 23 (2015): 881.

Dr. Garcia describes the three talks he will present at the upcoming ISMRM 23rd Annual Meeting & Exhibition (May 30 – June 5, Toronto, ON, Canada) as “a semi-automatic methodology to characterize the geometry and hemodynamics of the aorta using a single 4D flow MRI acquisition; a novel method to quantify 3D flow helicity (spiral-like blood flow) produced in the ascending aorta by aortic bicuspid valves; and a study that evaluates the effect of flow vorticity (2D blood flow spinning) in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot”.
