Titles : Iyad- MRI Changes in Visceral Fat in Crohn's Disease

Bio: PhD student in Radiological and Imaging Sciences, School of medicine .Masters in Molecular Imaging from the University of Queensland – Australia .Bachelors in Biomedical Engineering from Ajman University – UAE

Abstract: Crohn’s disease (CD) is an inflammatory bowel disease. It affects thousands of people in the UK alone. Visceral fat hypertrophy is a characteristic radiological finding in CD. To date radiologists just describe it but are not yet able to provide more objective data regarding visceral fat volume and other various characteristics. This study aims to use various techniques in MRI and image processing to study visceral fat hypertrophy in CD and its relation to disease activity.

Valentina- Magnetic resonance imaging of lungs using fluorinated gas

Bio: Valentina is  at the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre for a couple of months  working with Thomas Meersmann on MRI of lungs using Xe and F and with Galina Pavlovskaya on Na-MRI of skin
