In the Vandsburger Lab we investigate and develop new MRI techniques to image fibrosis in diseased hearts. We use the inherent physical properties of diseased tissue to create contrast without having to administer an exogenous contrast agent like gadolinium. This is particularly important for patients with conditions that predispose them to heart disease but contraindicate the use of contrast agents, such as chronic kidney disease patients.
