Dr Mark Bastin

Position: Reader in Brain Imaging

Interests:

Diffusion tensor MRI · Dynamic susceptibility contrast perfusion MRI · Magnetization transfer MRI · Quantitative spin-lattice relaxation (T1) measurement · Application to normal ageing, brain tumours, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, MND and MS.

Institute: University of Edinburgh

Department: Medical Physics


Research Themes

My primary research interest is in the development of MRI acquisition methods and post-processing techniques and their application to the study of the pathophysiology of diseases of the human brain.
