Vasanawala_100.gifIn collaboration with his colleague, Michael Lustig, PhD, from the Department of Electrical Engineering--Information Systems Laboratory, Dr. Vasanawala has developed a much faster MRI scanning method for use in pediatric patients. According to a recent article from Wired Magazine, "Fill in the Blanks: Using Math to Turn Lo-Res Datasets Into Hi-Res Samples,"

Drs. Vasanawala and Lustig have designed an experimental algorithm called compressed sensing for use in MR imaging, which allows very high resolution images to be acquired rapidly and shortens the sedation time for pediatric patients.
