April 6-28, 2017: Several of my pieces were selected for inclusion in the Windows to Our Body Exhibit at the El Taller, curated by Veronica Szarejko. Here are some images from the opening reception.

The following pieces were included in the exhibition. The images below include work produced in collaboration with Sarayu Ramachandran, Hadrien Dyvorne, Bei Zhang, and Alan Seifert.
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
Red Rivers: (MR Imaging of theLower Extremities) Contrast-enhanced MR venography depicting vasculature in thighs composed in Gimp
Moments and Movement (7T MRI, T2 TSE, Cerebellum, Coronal Oblique) Coordination is finding the right moments for your movement. This image of the cerebellum has been rotated and repeated in GIMP
Swippy (7T Axial SWI image of the human brain) Susceptibility weighted images are particularly good at imaging blood vessels in the brain. In this image the blood vessels in the brain are bright white, surrounding by a riot of colours in the rest of the brain.
The Heart of the Brain (7T MRI, T2 TSE, Brain) T2-weighted images of the brain presented with custom colourmaps highlighting the contours of the cortex
Teuthida Vision (7T MRI coronal oblique T2TSE human head) These image slices through the eyes capture just a hint of brain tissue to create the impression of a sea creature
Translucent (CT image of 7T rabbit coil for a MRI system) This is an image of a 7T RF coil capturing components usually invisible
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
Midbrain Flowers (7T Multi-Echo GRE MRI of the human Midbrain) This image is created from a single axial slice at 0.3 mm in-plane resolution through the human midbrain at approximately the level of the substantial nigra and periaqueductal gray matter. The image is a root sum of squares combination of four echo times, and is tiled in multiple colourmaps.
As the world falls down (7T MRI time of flight) Arteries of the brain, protected by a thin bubble of digital layers keeping reality at bay as the world falls down.
Arterial Rhapsody (7T MRI time of light, blood vessels in the human brain) The time of flight sequence highlights arteries in the brain. These arteries have been replicated and layered on top of each other creating the illusion of flight and motion
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.
