Welcome to the Laboratory of Quantitative and Dynamic Magnetic Resonance Imaging at the University of Iowa. We focus on the development of novel MRI acquisition, reconstruction, and processing methods that enables rapid and informative MRI for various dynamic and functional imaging applications. 

Our current research includes: 

  • Design of physics based and data driven (e.g., machine learning based) methods for efficient MR imaging.

  • Sparse sampling and model based reconstruction

  • Non-Cartesian MRI acquisition methods for efficient dynamic imaging

  • Rapid real-time MRI sequences to image moving organs

  • Upper airway MRI (e.g., vocal tract shaping during speech production, airway collapse in sleep apnea, COPD patients)

  • Dynamic contrast enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) for cardiac, and neuro vascular applications

Sajan Goud Lingala is the laboratory director. Our lab is a part of the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Radiology at the University of Iowa. The lab has access to state of the art research dedicated MRI scanners at the Magnetic Resonance Research Facility, and also to clinical scanners at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. We collaborate with several research and clinical faculty from the Departments of RadiologyOtolaryngology, NeurosurgeryCommunication Sciences and Disorders, and Iowa Institute of Biomedical Imaging.
