Tivarus Lab

Welcome to the Tivarus Lab

Our research focuses on clinical applications of advanced neuroimaging techniques such as functional MRI (fMRI), MR Spectroscopy (MRS), Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), morphometry, Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) and Dynamic Susceptibility Contrast (DSC). We have been using these techniques to study patients with brain tumors, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, HIV associated neurocognitive impairment, multiple sclerosis.

  • Pre-surgical brain mapping using Functional MRI (fMRI)
  • Clinical applications of fMRI, Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS), Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) and Perfusion (Arterial Spin Labeling-ASL and Dynamic Susceptibility Contrast-DSC)
  • Functional connectivity in the brain using resting state fMRI
  • Measurements of cerebrovascular reactivity using BOLD fMRI and ASL
