Project Objectives

The main objectives of the IDentIFY project are to:

  • Build upon and improve upon existing FFC technology to extend its range of clinical applications
  • Develop the theory of NMR relaxation in tissue at ultra-low fields in order to build models and identify new disease biomarkers
  • Design new image acquisition techniques that exploit the unique diagnostic information offered by FFC-MRI
  • Test FFC-MRI methods on tissue samples from surgery and tissue samples
  • Demonstrate proof-of-principal scans on patients
