    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Dr. Benzinger's research focuses on translating advanced neuromagnetic resonance imaging techniques from small animal research in the department of radiology, to translational research in the Center for Clinical Imaging Research (CCIR), and into clinical practice. In particular, her current research focuses on using directional diffusivity measurements derived from diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to measure axonal and myelin damage in pediatric and adult demyelination, dysmyelinating diseases, and as a function of aging. In addition, Dr. Benzinger combines advanced neuromagnetic resonance techniques, such as DTI and spectrosopy, and positron emission tomogrophy (PET) to study interactions between normal aging, Alzheimer's disease, depression and delerium in older adults.
