Blowback (7T MRI, Human Brainstem and Cervical Spinal Cord) A sagittal slice through the brainstem and cervical spinal cord, acquired using a gradient-echo pulse sequence and custom 22-channel brainstem and cervical spinal cord RF coil. The colour map was created in MATLAB and composed in GIMP.
What’s Left Behind (7T MRI, T2 TSE, Brain) Axial T2 TSE slices through the human brain, capturing the eyes and cortex with exquisite resolution
Sampa Blanket (Matlab Simulation of SAMPA RF Pulse, Spatial Spectral Excitation Profile) When we design the pulse sequences that we use to acquire images in MRI, we have to make sure that we are selecting the region that we’re interest in. Sometimes we design iterations that fail at that particular goal, but nothing is a complete failure.
We Three Meet Again (Computed Tomography of the Head and Chest) Surface rendering of lungs, heart, and liver created in OsiriX composed and visually anonymized in GIMP
This is the first year that I’ve done two calendars. I was asked to expand on my 2015 calendar to include images from the rest of the institute and I complied, but I really liked the idea of producing a calendar just for my lab group too.
