Saba Shirvani

As a Ph.D student at the University of Cambridge my research focuses on body imaging and spectroscopy at ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). I am a team member of the 7T MRI Physics group under the supervision of Dr.Rodgers.


My interests are translational data acquisition and processing techniques, tools for prospective clinical application in cardiac, liver and renal MRI. I am involved in the Horizon 2020 – NICI (Non-Invasive Chemistry Imaging in the whole human body) project.

We are a work-package leader of a consortium awarded €3.1m by the European Union to develop a cutting edge quintuple-resonant whole body RF coil for use in the WBIC 7T Terra MRI scanner. This system will be used to track the early response to chemotherapy in patients with colorectal cancer and liver metastases.

This project is a collaboration with UMC Utrecht, Amsterdam, Pisa, MR Coils, and the major MRI scanner vendors: Siemens, Philips and GE.
