Faculty briefs


Carleton University Physics Professor, Giles Santyr, is using a powerful new MRI scanner at the new Clinical Imaging Research Laboratories at London’s Robarts Research Institute to further his research into medical imaging.

Santyr, who is taking a one-year leave of absence from Carleton University to work at Robarts as the Director of the Merck Frosst Centre for Respiratory Imaging, is delighted to have access to the powerful 3-Tesla scanner, which is 60,000 times more powerful than the Earth’s magnetic field. He points out that a normal MRI scanner isn’t as effective when trying to explore the airways of the lungs in disorders such as asthma and allergies.

Santyr says that the new facilities at Robarts will allow him to further his research which could eventually help surgeons to more accurately determine what parts of a diseased lung to cut out.
