Peering inside a blood vessel

s developing will not only provide a picture but also give doctors information about the material causing the block. This will aid in determining which route to take to treat their patients, Wilman said.

Wilman completed a BSc at the University of British Columbia, followed by a PhD in Physics at the University of Alberta (U of A). The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) system Wilman used for his PhD was funded completely by AHFMR. In addition, in 1985 AHFMR funded the first human MRI scanner in Western Canada. Wilman was recruited from the Mayo Clinic with AHFMR funding. He has received funding from AHFMR for six years and has now been offered an AHFMR Senior Scholar award for five years.

Wilman conducts his research at the Centre for Magnetic Resonance Evaluation of Human Function and Disease at the U of A Hospital, a facility partially funded by AHFMR. The Centre contains three MRIs at magnetic field strengths of 1.5, 3.0 and 4.7 Tesla, each of which is devoted entirely to research. The 4.7 T MRI machine is the highest field strength in Canada that is used with human subjects.
