March 20, 2018 at Office of the Dean, 5th floor, Lecture Hall Building, Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, Prof.Sirintara Singhara Na Ayudhaya, M.D., Deputy Dean for International Relations, as Dean’s a warm welcome to Prof.Denis Le Bihan, The Founding Director of NeuroSpin – CEA Institute, on the occasion of his visit in order to discuss about the possibility of further collaboration in the area of research between Ramathibodi and CEA.
Dr. Denis Le Bihan is a pioneer of the Diffusion MRI concept from theorization of water diffusion measurement by MRI to its application in clinical practice, and his innovative imaging techniques have rapidly spread throughout the world. Combined with the advance of intravenous thrombolytic therapy, Diffusion MRI has spared many patients suffering acute stroke by drastically shortening the time required for diagnosis within just minutes to a few hours after the stroke onset, when brain tissue is still salvageable. Crisp Diffusion MRI images also facilitate the diagnosis of other neurological diseases and the determination of the extent of tumor dissection before performing surgery, leading to a drastic decline in the risk of damaging white matter fibers associated with bodily function during surgical procedures.
Moreover, on March 21, 2018, he also attended the meeting with the staff of Department of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Radiology for the next research collaboration project at Suwattana Meeting Room, Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital, Mahidol University, Thailand.
