David Rudko is an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery and Biomedical Engineering at the Montreal Neurological Institute of McGill University.
David completed his PhD in Physics with a specialization in ultra-high field MRI under the supervision of Dr. Ravi Menon at the University of Western Ontario.
The overall focus of his lab is the application of novel high-field MRI methodology in conjunction with biophysical modeling to augment the current understanding of brain anatomy and physiology. One of his specific goals is to extend magnetic susceptibility and relaxometry-based MRI models of brain tissue microstructure to develop atlases applicable to neurological disease. He has applied MRI physics techniques to research in animal models and human neurological diseases at field strengths of 3 T, 7 T and 9.4 T. His recent work has centred on quantification of cortical demyelination in MS patients using surface-based 3 T magnetization transfer imaging combined with ultra-high resolution 7 T structural imaging.
