ITC Conference Grant Awardees
Ms Yeva Prysiazhniuk
My name is Yeva Prysiazhniuk and I am a first-year PhD. student at the Second Faculty of Medicine of Charles University in Prague. The ITC conference grant gave me an opportunity to present and discuss the results of my Master’s thesis at the ESMRMB 2021 conference. The presented work concerned the methods of quantification of background suppressed ASL MRI without M0 image. Currently, I continue working on this topic as a part of my PhD. research.

Ms Catarina Domingos
My name is Catarina Domingos, I have a master degree in Biomedical Engineering and, currently, I am working as a Research Assistant at Evolutionary Systems and Biomedical Engineering Lab (LaSEEB), Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa. My research is focused on identifying neuroimaging biomarkers of neurological diseases, using BOLD-fMRI and ASL perfusion imaging. For the ASL data, I have also tested different analysis approaches.
Last year, thanks to the ITC conference grant, I could participate in the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB) 38th Annual Scientific Meeting, where I presented my poster entitled “Impact of susceptibility distortion correction on perfusion imaging by pCASL with 3D GRASE readout”. This work aimed to investigate the effects of susceptibility distortion correction in the analysis of the ASL data. With this comprehension, it is possible to adjust the pipeline analysis and obtain better results. Thereby, the work presented in this poster contributes to enhancing the potential of the application of ASL perfusion imaging in some pathologies, such as
