Scientific Interests

Dr. Albert Thomas is interested in implementing novel multi-dimensional magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging techniques on the whole body MRI scanners (1.5T, 3T and 7T) and evaluating these techniques in human cancer including prostate and breast cancer and other pathologies. He has more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, over 250 conference abstracts and several book chapters.
