Abdominal/Pelvic MRI

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a recognized world leader in the development, validation and clinical implementation of advanced methods for abdominal MRI. The group is well known for pioneering work in quantitative biomarkers of liver fat and iron overload and for work in 4D flow MRI methods to evaluate complex flow patterns in the abdominal vasculature. The group works closely with the UW MR Physics Group and GE Healthcare on the development and translation of pioneering imaging methods aimed at evaluating abdominal diseases. The MRI group has over $5 million in NIH-funded projects and over 100 peer-reviewed publications aimed specifically at improved abdominal and pelvic imaging. Clinical services include a wide range of imaging protocols including advanced liver MRI and MRCP, quantitative imaging of fat, iron, and fibrosis, quantitative flow measurements in the abdominal vasculature, and MR enterography for patients with Crohn’s disease, among others.
