Cardiovascular MRI

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) group at Sunnybrook Research InstituteThe cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) group, under the direction of senior scientist Dr. Graham Wright, is part of the physical sciences platform and the cardiac research program at Sunnybrook Research Institute.

Diseases of the heart and circulation are a major cause of mortality in the western world. During the last decade, the cardiovascular MRI group has focused its research on improving the diagnosis and assessment of cardiovascular diseases, including ischemic and congenital heart disease, and neurovascular and peripheral vascular disease, and on characterizing blood supply associated with cancers, primarily using MRI.
