Dr. Hargreaves is Professor of Radiology, focusing on body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology development and application, especially breast, abodominal and musculoskeletal applications. He completed his PhD at Stanford University in Electrical Engineering before moving to the Radiology Department in 2005. He directs the Body MRI research group, and co-directs the IMMERS lab which applies mixed-reality visualization to medical applications. Current specific projects include non-contrast breast MRI screening, rapid quantitative knee MRI, and improved MRI near metallic implants, as well as interventional guidance for breast and orthopedic surgery. In addition to research, Dr. Hargreaves teaches two graduate level courses, and lectures in numerous other courses at Stanford. He is a Fellow of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
I am interested in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) applications and augmented reality applications in medicine. These include abdominal, breast and musculoskeletal imaging, which require development of faster, quantitative, and more efficient MRI methods that provide improved diagnostic contrast compared with current methods. My work includes novel excitation schemes, efficient imaging methods and reconstruction tools and augmented reality in medicine.
High Resolution 3D Diffusion-weighted Breast MRI
The purpose of this study is to determine how well a new MRI technique called "High
resolution 3D diffusion-weighted breast MRI" detects breast cancer.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
