Jensen Laboratory

Formula showing that the fiber orientation density function is proportional to the inverse Funk transform of the diffusion MRI signal.

Dr. Jensen’s research relates to developing and applying MRI technology. A major focus is employing diffusion MRI to characterize brain microstructure. For example, the Jensen lab has proposed a diffusion MRI method known as fiber ball imaging for measuring the distribution of axon orientations in vivo. As a part of several ongoing collaborations, this method and others are being used in the study of a variety of diseases including Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, and addiction.
