Bruno Madore Ph.D.
Bruno obtained a B.Sc. in Physics from Laval University in Quebec City, and a Ph.D. in medical biophysics from the University of Toronto. He also performed postdoctoral studies at Stanford University, in fast MR imaging.
His main research expertise lies in the field of fast MR imaging, as applied to cardiac, vascular, diffusion and/or temperature imaging clinical problems. He is co-PI with Dr. Stephan Maier on an NIH-funded project for fast 3D diffusion imaging aimed at rapidly capturing the 3D fiber architecture of human brains in vivo. Another co-PI project, with Dr. Lawrence P. Panych, involves measuring the temperature elevation and position of lesions being treated non-invasively by thermal ablation, in the presence of breathing motion. Along with Dr. Duran-Mendicuti from Emergency Radiology, he is also pursuing a project that involves detecting pulmonary embolisms in emergency patients who cannot receive injections of CT or MR contrast agents, due to allergies and/or kidney failure. Another ongoing project involves translating concepts useful in fast MR imaging to the world of fast ultrasound imaging. The latter NIH-funded project has produced reconstruction algorithms capable of significantly improving spatial resolution and contrast in ultrasound images.
