    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Imaging is a crucial tool in medicine and biomedical research. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computational tomography (CT), proton emission tomography (PET), and ultrasound are routinely used not only to diagnose disease but also to plan and guide surgical interventions, track disease progression, measure the response of the body to treatment, and understand how genetic and environmental factors relate to anatomical and functional phenotypes.
