My fellowship research experience included 2.5 years of post-doctoral research training in the Asthma and Airway Translational Research Unit (AATRU) under the mentorship of Dr. Mario Castro. My research focus has been in establishing imaging biomarkers in respiratory disease, with a historical focus in airway and interstitial lung diseases. We utilize both volumetric computed chest tomography (CT) and 129Xe lung MRI.
We completed a double-blind, parallel assignment pilot study evaluating the efficacy and safety of image-guided bronchial thermoplasty. In this study, a single session of 129Xe MR image-guided BT was compared to standard three session BT.
Currently, we are utilizing the unique properties of 129Xe MRI to develop sensitive imaging biomarkers of treatment response in a number of respiratory diseases. We have focused on protocol development to speed up image acquisition time as well as develop fully automated image analysis programs. Our image analysis pipelines of both CT and 129Xe MRI integrate image segmentation using convolutional neural networks to improve accuracy and reduce time.
We will soon be leading a multi-center trial evaluating 129Xe MRI in chronic HP and IPF.
We are a member of the 129Xe MRI Clinical Trials Consortium.
