Student-Led Medical Physics Research

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) studies are important for research investigating brain activity of children. In order to ensure high quality fMRI experiments, a training protocol designed to reduce motion of participants during scanning is necessary. To address the problem of patient monitoring, students in Dr. Hauger’s electronics lab have been working on developing a motion sensor that will electronically measure a patient’s movement while undergoing an MRI.
