I’m Ruixi Zhou, a 3rd year PhD student in Dr. Salerno’s lab. While I am interested in using basic science to solve problems, my long-term research interests mainly focus on using imaging techniques to help diagnose and prognose human diseases. For my initial project in the lab, I was trying to reduce the respiratory artifacts of cardiac first-pass perfusion images reconstructed by k-t accelerated and compressed sensing techniques. Following by the previous work I transitioned to develop a cardiac and respiratory self-gated continuous acquisition spiral cine strategy. Currently, I’m also working on simultaneous acquisition of cine, T1 maps and LGE images, which would provide a more simplified, efficient and robust way to fully characterize the myocardium in patients with cardiomyopathy.
