The MRI group of the departments of Biomedical Engineering & Physics and Radiology & Nuclear Medicine is hiring a PhD-student to develop advanced MRI techniques for imaging skeletal muscle trauma. Over the past decade the two departments have established an active collaboration in the field of musculoskeletal imaging. The PhD project involves the development and optimization of skeletal muscle Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) for detection of micro trauma in athletes after hamstring injury and to translate this technique from a proof of concept setting towards clinical application. Fast imaging acquisition strategies will be developed to improve scan sensitivity and reduce scan times, which includes image acquisition and reconstruction. In addition, advanced data-analysis tool need to be developed to quantify these diffusion parameters in a robust and automated way.
