Congratulations to Jason Chiang, MD, PhD for Receiving the 2020-2021 Philips/RSNA Research Fellow Grant
The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Research & Education Foundation awarded Jason Chiang, MD. the 2020-2021 Philips/RSNA Research Fellow Grant of $50,000 for his project titled "Computational Modeling of Combination Transarterial Embolization and Microwave Ablation Therapy Using 4D Flow MRI in an in Vivo Porcine Liver Model."
Under the guidance of Edward Lee, MD, PhD and Kyung Hyun Sung, PhD, Dr. Chiang utilizes novel flow sensitive MRI sequences to quantify changes in hepatic blood flow during the embolization portion of combination therapy. The end goal of the project is to create a computational model that incorporates MR-derived flow data into a tool that helps radiologists predict the final microwave ablation zones and their margins during combination therapy.
