Dr Enrico de Vita is Reader in Medical Physics in the Biomedical Engineering Department at King's College London. He has 14 years experience working as Magnetic Resonance Clinical Scientist in Medical Physics and Neuroradiology (National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery). His main focus is in developing MRI acquisition and post-processing methods to provide novel imaging biomarkers, using these to establish natural history and measure response to therapy in proof-of-principle investigations of new treatments as well as elucidating underlying disease mechanisms. He has an interest in non-invasive MR quantification of cerebral perfusion with Arterial Spin Labelling (ASL), MR spectroscopy (MRS), high-field MRI and hybrid PET-MR technology. New projects include investigating neonatal brain development at ultra-high field, optimisation of ASL acquisition on PET-MR systems, neonatal and fetal MRS and developing placental perfusion measurement.
